Lincoln does its own Lip Dub

Take That Lip Dub: Hundreds of people from across Lincolnshire mimed to Take That songs for an 8-minute ‘Lip Dub’ video showcasing Lincoln’s landmarks and heritage.

Hundreds of people from across Lincolnshire took part in the filming of an 8-minute ‘Lip Dub’ video showcasing Lincoln’s landmarks and people, while miming on Take That songs.

The video by BBC Lincolnshire spans Take That’s Shine and Never Forget. It starts at High Bridge on the High Street and proceeds through Steep Hill to Castle Square, culminating at Lincoln Cathedral.

Filmed in only one take, the video shows people lip syncing as they ran, drove, danced and marched through the historic heart of the city.

Participants included Jive dancers, RAF cadets, Mods on Vespas, Mystery Players, Nordic Walkers, a variety of choirs, a hotel buggy, cricket team, local shops, carnival characters, the Mayor, rock school, Ceilidh dancers, cyclists, gymnasts, choristers, Delta Dogs, Olympic torch bearers, and shepherds with Lincoln Longwool Sheep.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire managing editor, Charlie Partridge, said: “We really want to thank the people of Lincolnshire who were fabulous in supporting this venture and the Lip Dub is – we hope – a fitting celebration of our county and the beautiful city of Lincoln.”
