The Museum of Lincolnshire life will host Guy Martin’s replica WWI tank next weekend and visitors will have the chance to photograph the war machine.
As previously reported, the tank which was built as part of a Channel 4 documentary by the Lincolnshire daredevil will feature in a special exhibition at the Burton Road museum on May 5 and 6.
Visitors will also get the chance to talk to some of the volunteers who helped build the tank.
The tank’s appearance in the city for Remembrance Day in 2017 was cancelled due to health and safety concerns.
Tickets to the museum exhibition can be purchased on site priced at £2.50 for adults, £1 for children and concessions and £5 for a family ticket (two adults and up to three children).
The cost of the museum event can be refunded against a Castle Day ticket or Lincoln Castle Annual Pass at Lincoln Castle’s RAF100 event.
‘Kings of the Sky’
Lincoln Castle will also host some impressive military machines over the same weekend, starting on Saturday, May 5, as part of their ‘Kings of the Sky’ event for the RAF100 celebrations.
A full-size replica spitfire and WWI bi-plane will be in the Castle grounds, while The Battle of Memorial Flight will take part in a flypast.
