Lincoln Castle



Built by William the Conqueror in 1068 on a site occupied since Roman times, Lincoln Castle has dominated the Lincoln skyline for almost one thousand years.  Inside the Castle walls is also a Victorian prison and one of only four surviving copies of Magna Carta.

The Castle grounds will be filled with a market village, a stage hosting lots of live entertainment, the Great Exhibition and a space dedicated to meeting the bands and performers at the Festival, as well as a chance to buy their merchandise.

The Castle is currently displaying the Poppies installation, as seen at the Tower of London in 2014 as part of the 14-18 NOW to mark the centenary of the First World War.
