Lincoln people asked to sell their city

This story is over

People of Lincoln can have their say in the marketing of their city by taking part in a survey to highlight the best attractions.

In a bid to produce an innovative marketing campaign and grow the region’s visitor economy, the Visit Lincoln Partnership is inviting anyone who loves Lincoln and Lincolnshire to rate their favourite destinations.

The eight-question Lincoln 800 Survey is in commemoration of the 8th century of the 1215 King John Magna Carta, which is owned by Lincoln Cathedral, and is hoped to gain at least 800 responses.

Those completing the survey will be asked to rate an assortment of Lincolnshire attractions and heritage in order of the things they are most proud of.

There will also be a number of prizes up for grabs such as stays at a number of Lincoln hotels.

The year 2015 will bring many important developments in Lincoln tourism and the 800th anniversary will coincide with the opening of the refurbished Lincoln Castle, which will display the Magna Carta.

2015 will also see Lincoln play host to the National Cycling Championships in June and a new Bomber Command memorial will be built on Canwick Hill.

Visit Lincoln and partners will be promoting Lincoln attractions and events to a national and international audience to bring in more visitors into the area.

The project is in partnership with local branding agency BrandThing.

Emma Tatlow, Visit Lincoln Partnership Manager said: “2015 provides a significant opportunity to put Lincoln and Lincolnshire ‘on the map’ – the combination of events next year provide us with a once in a generation opportunity to raise much needed awareness of what this area has to offer.”
