Lincoln will host the Magna Carta Weekend to celebrate the 800th anniversary sealing of Magna Carta exactly 800 years to the day it was first sealed in 1215.
From carnival costumes and samba, to storytelling and street art, the Magna Carta Weekend will provide two days and one night of memorable music, sights and sounds involving the whole city.
Lincoln Castle has undergone a massive £22 million renovation in line with the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the 1215 Magna Carta. Lincoln Castle offers its visitors completed wall walks, the David P J Ross Magna Carta Vault, the Victorian Prison, and the Heritage Skills Centre. This can all be enjoyed from the 4th of April 2015.
