Lincoln Cathedral Flower Festival returns

Celebrating the life and works of St Hugh of Lincoln

The Lincoln Cathedral Flower Festival started this week, celebrating 950 years of the city’s iconic building.

Stunning displays blossom in every area of the Cathedral for the festival, which runs from 9am-4pm until Monday, August 8.

The festival celebrates the life and works of St Hugh of Lincoln, as well as many other notable visionaries whose “ideas and actions have shaped the world we live in and changed our lives”.
