Free royal wedding screening at Lincoln Castle

Bring flags and plenty of patriotic spirit as Lincoln Castle prepares to showcase the royal wedding live on a big cinema screen at a lawn party.

Entry to the grounds will be free as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot on Saturday, May 19, with the Castle gates opening at 10am.

The event is not ticketed and places are limited, which will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

The castle cafe will have some royal-wedding themed treats and there will be live link-ups with BBC Radio Lincolnshire, who will be at the wedding.

The screening will stop at 3pm, with the castle closing an hour later while it is prepared for the evening concert of Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers and Bjorn Again.

Tickets for the evening concert are still available here.

Standard admission prices still apply to the castle’s main attractions, the Medieval Wall walk, the Victorian Prison and the Magna Carta Vault.

Public engagement manager at Lincolnshire County Council Jon Hogan said: “We want to make this the biggest and best royal wedding party going, so bring your flags to wave and feel free to get dressed up – from T shirts to tiaras!”

Meanwhile, Boultham Park will also show the Royal Wedding, along with the FA Cup Final, on a giant 21 square metre screen as part of its official opening celebration on the same day.
