In pictures: Lincoln Castle’s Victorian Extravaganza

Rain didn’t dampen the Victorian spirit at the castle!

Lincoln Castle was transported back to the 1800s this weekend as Victorian performers took over the grounds and prison.

Despite some heavy downpours, Her Majesty Queen Victoria graced the ground of the castle, alongside a travelling Victorian showman, museum of curiosities and other entertainers.

The event was a part of the city’s 2019 Victoriana programme and welcomed visitors of all ages.

There was also a surprise visit from the cast of Oliver!, who are performing in Lincoln Cathedral in August.

A suspicious man and woman were seen in the area
