Route, timings & road closures for Imps’ title-winning parade

Lincoln City will end their league season with a home game against Colchester at Sincil Bank on Saturday, May 4.

The parade will take place on Sunday, May 5 starting at 3pm from South Park.

The parade route will be live between 3pm-4pm It will make its way through the city on its three-mile route that has been greatly extended from the previous parade in 2017.

The route

The parade will make its way from South Park up the High Street as far as the level crossing, turning left to go up Wigford Way before travelling along Silver Street.

The coaches will then make their way up Lindum Hill (although this short part of the journey will be conducted at normal vehicle speed and spectators are requested to choose an alternative vantage point).

It will then turn left onto Pottergate and make its way to the north of the city and up Newport, past Bishop’s Grosseteste University and along Riseholme Road. The event will finish at around 4pm before the coaches reach the A46.

  • Loading bays and parking bays on Silver Street will be out of use from 4pm on Saturday, May 4 until approximately 4pm on Sunday, May 5

  • Temporary road closures on side streets are anticipated to be very short-term and will be lifted once the parade has passed. The City of Lincoln Council has confirmed it is safe to do so
