‘Monsters’ take over Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral is hosting a monster family fun day to mark the end of the summer holidays.

Families are invited to the Cathedral at 1pm on September 1 for a day inspired by strange beasts, mega monsters and creepy creatures.

Children are invited for the final family fun day before school starts.

As part of the day, families can take on the sculpting of a giant-sea monster based on the fantastical beast images from the Wren library.

A trail around the cathedral will also have children spotting the signs of good and evil around the carvings and statues.

This sea creature is what children will be tasked with sculpting.

Before the end of the day, there will be time for a story and a service by St Hugh’s Choir.

Sally Bleasdale, education outreach officer at Lincoln Cathedral, said: “We love finding new ways to engage families with the Cathedral’s stories, archeology and architecture through activities.

“We are very excited for the upcoming monster WOW day and hope the children are both educated and entertained. We look forward to welcoming families from Lincoln and further afield.”

The day is included in the Cathedral’s normal entry charge and family tickets are available.
