Autumn is about to weave its magic...
Children may have returned to the classroom, but there’s still lots for families to look forward to over the coming weeks.
Lincoln BIG is encouraging people to think about sizzling sausages, ghostly tales and a play featuring a favourite children’s character.
These are just some of the fun things to enjoy this Autumn and Visit Lincoln is also keen to remind families that they can discover lots more great ideas of where to go and what to do in the latest edition of a useful, family-friendly guide.
On Friday and Saturday, September 28 and 29, there’s an opportunity for everyone from tots to grown-ups to enjoy entertainment from Stamp Theatre. The company will be at the Lincoln Drill Hall in Free School Lane showcasing their stage adaptation of Stick Man – that much-loved children’s storybook character.
On October 13, there’s the welcome return of another family fun event, the highly-popular Lincoln Sausage Festival, which will be taking place in Lincoln Castle and Castle Hill.
Mums, dads and children won’t have any problem following their noses, with the tempting aroma of Lincolnshire and other sausages filling the air. Apart from the sizzling bangers there will be plenty of entertainment on offer too.
Lincolnshire’s own chef Rachel Green will be getting creative with sausages at her demonstration stand in the Castle grounds. Apart from tucking into their favourite bangers, festival-goers will also be able to buy their favourite sausages to take home and cook later.
It’s that time of year again, when darker nights evoke spine-chilling ghostly tales. Halloween beckons, so why not discover more about the spooky goings-on that have been happening in Lincoln down the decades?
All you have to do is get on board the Tour Lincoln bus, and take a trip into Lincoln’s haunted past. The ideal time to do this could be on October 27 at 5pm or 6pm or October 28 at 5pm. Places on the guided tours cost £6 and your trip into the city’s past will last for about an hour.
