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, if you would like to add the Castle wall walk, Prison or Magna Carta to your visit, you will require an additional ticket, which can be purchased at the Castle. (The general public can also pay to enter Lincoln Castle independently – the entry fee is £12).

In addition there will be a market which is open access in Castle Square and we are planning a few open features here too.
