Traditional crafts return to Lincoln Castle


1,000 years of traditional crafts returns to Lincoln Castle this weekend (July 4-5) for another year of fantastic demonstrations.

Kathryn Banfield, heritage skills centre manager, said: “We’ve got plenty to keep visitors entertained over the three days. The grounds of the castle will be filled with craftspeople demonstrating traditional skills from blacksmithing and willow weaving to chainsaw carving and leatherwork.

“There’ll also be a host of hands-on activities for the whole family with the Lincoln Castle Investigate team and don’t miss our series of talks running in the Heritage Skills Centre or special guided tours.

“The whole weekend has the makings of a fantastic family outing.”

Tickets are £12 for adults, £9.60 for concession and £7.20 for children. Family tickets (two adults and up to three children) are also available for £31.20.

Tickets include admission to the event, Medieval Wall Walk, Victorian Prison and David PJ Ross Magna Carta Vault. Admission also includes a free return visit, which must be made within six months and can include daytime events.
