Lincolnshire 30 Under 30 rising stars light up Lincoln Cathedral

The faces of the inspirational young 30 Under 30 stars of 2019 lined the walls of Lincoln Cathedral’s Chapter House on Thursday, October 31.

The project, which celebrates up and coming talent in the county, culminated with a reception event and exhibition, as well as giving those shortlisted the opportunity to meet their peers.
