Lincoln Christmas market given the go ahead after being cancelled last year
After disappointment with last year’s cancellation, the Lincoln Christmas Market will return this winter.
This December, the city’s famous Christmas market returns – subject to government restrictions – and traders are now encouraged to apply for a stand as soon as possible.
The market returns December 2-5 and over 200 stalls will be set up in Lincoln’s medieval square between the castle and cathedral.
Cultural entertainment is offered as well as food at the market, which has existed since the early 1980s and since then has drawn 250,000 visitors to the city.
The Lincoln Christmas Market website states: “Visitors are welcome to this beautiful city and the traditional Christmas market, where you can enjoy cultural entertainment and stroll at over 200 stalls along the medieval square and the surrounding area.
“Lincoln is a contemporary cathedral city with over 2,000 years of history and the perfect place to visit during the festive period.
“Go on a journey through time and stroll through the cobblestones of the city’s cultural district.
“The medieval square between the impressive Norman castle and the magnificent Gothic cathedral is the perfect setting for the Christmas market.
“The Lincoln Christmas Market has grown dramatically since its inception with only 11 stalls. The Christmas Market offers visitors and residents a truly festive experience with a traditional, high-quality event for the whole family.”
