Wristbands & Event Control

All of the main day features of the event are covered by our wristbands.

You can buy a festival weekend wristband which runs from Friday until Monday, or you can buy single day bands for Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday.

If you have purchased tickets for any additional events, you need to either print these out in advance, or bring them in a digital format on a mobile device. Evening features (and a few daytime features) are all ticketed separately since they are limited capacity.

Your wristband will give you entry to:

*please note, in 2019 Asylum wristband holders can access the Castle grounds, Steampunk market, Prison, Wall Walk and a new special exhibition in the Prison.

 (The general public can also pay to enter Lincoln Castle independently – the entry fee is £13.50).

Bailgate Methodist Church Hall is CLOSED on Sunday.

In addition there will be markets which are open access in Castle Square.

You can collect your wristband from 10:30 on Friday from Event Control.
