Location map revealed for Lincoln Imp Trail

Are you feeling excited?

By Local Democracy Reporter

There are just ten days to go until the Lincoln Imp Trail begins in the city, and the map for the event has now been released.

Thirty imps, designed by national and local artists, will be on display throughout the city of Lincoln, while one imp will be at the Hildreds Centre in Skegness.

The event starts on July 3 and encourages people to go on a hunt through Lincoln for the thirty imps, and it will end on September 8.

Locations include the Cornhill Quarter, Steep Hill, Lincoln Cathedral and the Stonebow, as well as a whole host of other places.

It has now been confirmed which imps will be placed in which area.

As well as the 30 chosen imps, there will also be a wide variety of Education Trail Imps, decorated by schools across Lincolnshire, and five community ‘roaming’ imps that move among shops in Lincoln.

Once the imp trail is finished, there will be an event at Lincoln Castle between September 9-23, ahead of an auction on Lincolnshire Day, October 1.

Funds raised from the auction will be donated to the charity partner of the event, St Barnabas Hospice.

The much anticipated event was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it will now go ahead bigger and better than ever.

In a vote set up by The Lincolnite, Steam Explorer, which was designed by artist Rosie Ablewhite, was the public’s favourite of the imps, with Lizzy Mason’s Majestic imp coming second.
