The Lincoln Festival

Fabulous festival: Visitors spend a sunny Saturday enjoying the Lincoln Festival by the Brayford.

Crowds lined the streets surrounding Brayford Pool on July 13 to enjoy Lincoln Festival celebrations.

The 12-hour event featured a carnival theme, with fabulous costumes, live music, dancing, activities, food and firework finale. Families could enjoy a toddlers’ music session and a fun Teddy Bears’ Picnic. There was also a street theatre, climbing wall, water displays, fairground rides, and stalls, plus the delicious Italian Market.

The festival marks the launch of Lincoln BIGs summertime events, such as Lincoln Busking Festival, Lincoln Dances Festival, Lincoln by the Sea and Lincoln Evening Artists’ Markets.
