The annual Lincoln TEDx event, which this year explored what society can take from the ‘new normal’, is now available to watch in full on YouTube.

The live virtual programme of talks took place earlier this month.

Twelve speakers and performers took to the stage to answer the question ‘what does tomorrow look like.’

Speakers included Rachael Wragg, who shared her insight into how Lincoln Cathedral can help tell our social history, entrepreneur Steff Wright who discussed plans to empower communities, and PhD student at the University of Lincoln Mamatha Thota, who explored the huge role AI could have to play in humanity.

It is hoped that live TEDx shows would return to the city in 2022.

Watch the talks here:

Simply Red, the popular band behind hits like If You Don’t Know Me By Now and Stars, will touch down at Lincolnshire Showground as part of their huge 2022 tour.

With over 60 million albums sold worldwide and five UK number 1 hit albums, Simply Red remain one of the UK’s most successful bands.

Their highly anticipated Lincoln concert will take place on Friday, July 1, 2022.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 26 at 10am and prices are currently being advertised by organiser LPH Concerts and Events as £52, plus fees.

Mick Hucknall formed Simply Red in 1985 in Manchester and enjoyed immediate success with first single ‘Money’s Too Tight To Mention’ and the BRIT Award-nominated album ‘Picture Book’ (the first of 13 nominations, and 3 BRIT Award wins).

The band will also be joined on their tour by Lisa Stansfield. After being introduced to Coldcut in 1989, her guest vocals helped ‘People Hold On’ storm the charts and led to a solo career which saw the Rochdale star conquer the world with her accessible soulful dance music.

Simply Red are the latest acts to be announced at the showground, which recently revealed Rag ‘n’ Bone Man would also be on the bill for 2022.
