Lincoln Christmas Medieval Market back at new historic setting

This story is over

A Christmas Medieval Market is back in Lincoln at a new historic setting after restoration works last year meant traders lost their venue.

Around 16 traditional traders, a rotisserie, and plenty of quirky entertainment will entice people into St Mary’s Guildhall on High Street.

Ongoing works at the Bishops’ Palace meant that the medieval section of the market needed to be cancelled last year.

The traders have now formed a cooperative and booked the Guildhall, where they hope to be for the next few years.

It is a free to attend market, and will be open from 10am until 9pm on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7 and 10am until 4pm on Sunday, December 8.

The organisers promise that it will be a feast for the senses, a unique way to enjoy the festive season and a great place to find unique gifts.
