For the 2021 festival, events will take place over a ten-day period, from Friday 10th to Sunday 19th September


This year we are celebrating the many voices of Lincolnshire with a particular focus on the amazing stories that many people have not heard.


The theme focusses on the idea of celebrating the many voices of the county that have contributed to its heritage and culture. We’re hoping to showcase the many ‘unheard voices’ that don’t usually get a lot of attention. Stories from women, children, the working class and agricultural workers, minority groups and even animals that have somehow contributed to the history of Lincolnshire. The festival will run from Friday 10th to Sunday 19th September 2021 giving everyone a whole ten days to visit the special places taking part.


This page also contains helpful downloads for organisers to use throughout the planning period, right up to the big event.
