Out and about: Check out all the Lincoln Imp Trail sculptures

Which one is your favourite?

The sculptures are now in place across various locations in the city as the Lincoln Imp Trail prepares to begin on Saturday, July 3.

Thirty imps were designed by national and local artists and will be on display throughout Lincoln until September 16, as well as one which will be at the Hildreds Centre in Skegness.

There will also be five community ‘roaming’ imps that move among shops in Lincoln, including Wind who was adopted by The Lincolnite. The Educational Trail imps, which were decorated by schools across Lincolnshire, will be launched next week.

Once the Lincoln Imp Trail is finished, there will be an event at Lincoln Castle between September 17-23, ahead of an auction on Lincolnshire Day on October 1. Funds raised from the auction will be donated to the charity partner of the event, St Barnabas Hospice.

Here is where you can find the imps:
