The Battle of Lincoln Fair

Buy Tickets Share
Saturday 27 - Monday 29 May

2017 marks the remarkable 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln Fair.  This battle has been described as the most important conflict on English soil after the Battle of Hastings.  And so to commemorate this momentous occasion we return the Castle to the 13th Century with the sights, sounds and smells of the medieval castle.  Throughout each day the Battle of Lincoln Fair 1217 will be played out through a series of vignettes with a cast of over 100 armoured soldiers, both French and English. Key characters such as the Kings champion William Marshall and the Castle's keeper Lady Nichola de la Haye will play out history where it happened 800 years ago.  A supporting cast of Garrison soldiers from archers to men-at-arms and mounted Knights will bring to life the scenes of medieval combat and conflict.

This event is in support of the exhibition "Battles and Dynasties" at The Collection and Usher art Gallery which examines with a rich collection of artefacts, documents, portraits and arms, the dynastic struggles in the Country over the Centuries including this most important of medieval battles - the Battle of Lincoln Fair 1217.
