1940's Weekend
Join us at Lincoln Castle this weekend as we journey back to wartime Britain

Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 August
10am – 5pm

There's plenty to see and experience with a full sized replica spitfire and hurricane taking centre stage in the Castle grounds. Discover what life was like on the front line, meet the soldiers and find out their stories.Imagine what life was like on the home front with opportunity to enter a replica Anderson Shelter and experience the space that whole families had to take shelter in during the 1940's air raids.   

There's plenty to see and do this weekend as the Castle forms part of the City's annual celebrations. Surrounding the Castle there is 1940's music, market, military vehicles and inside the grounds the opportunity to learn how to make do and mend!   Why not enter into the spirit of the era by dressing up and joining in this popular Lincoln weekend!  

At the Castle we will also be running a Repair Café, a modern day twist on the 1940's make do and mend, so if you have something that needs a revamp – bring it along and let our artists assist!
