Calling all yellow bellies! As lovers of all things local we’re excited to celebrate the traditions, past and culture of our county this Lincolnshire Day. Taking place on Saturday 1st October, there are lots of fun ways you can get involved so if you want to paint the town yellow here are our suggestions for the best Lincolnshire Day yet!

In our outlets

Not only can you pop on down to your local food store to fill your basket with delicious products from our delicious Love Local range for the ultimate Lincolnshire Day lunch, but you can also take part in a range of activities our staff are putting on. We’ll be raising money for local charities with quiz sheets, guess the sweets and Spin the Spud in conjunction with Pipers Crisps. We’ve also got flags in store for kids to colour in.

Speaking of discounts, we’ll also be offering people 10% discount on Love Local products in stores until Sunday 2nd October so you can make the most of this yellow belly weekend.

Bustling Bailgate

Take in some of Lincolnshire’s most iconic landmarks this Lincolnshire Day… for free! See the medieval charm of Lincoln Castle and explore Lincoln’s famous Cathedral. Go on a guided tour around the Castle and take in the extraordinary Cathedral. You might even catch a glimpse of the Lincoln Imp.

Wolds Arts Festival

We’re a county brimming with creative talent and you can experience it first-hand at Wolds Arts Festival taking place in Market Rasen on Saturday 1st October and Caistor on Sunday 2nd October. Featuring live music, comedy, theatre and workshops all for free this is the perfect opportunity to do a song and dance about all things Lincolnshire! A special performance by Event FX, the team involved in the pyrotechnics of this year’s Olympic Games Opening Ceremony will also take place.

Lincoln Ghost Bus Tour

Want to see a different side to Lincoln? Get closer than ever before to figures of our past on the city’s open-top bus for an evening of scary stories from a local ghost expert. Tickets cost £6 and the tour will start at 6pm from Lincoln Cathedral. What a spook-tacular way to end Lincolnshire Day!

Lincolnshire Food Festival

Local foodies rejoice! Celebrate all things delicious about our bountiful county at Lincolnshire Food Festival, taking place at St Marks Shopping Centre. Select Lincolnshire will be holding the event between 10am – 4pm.
