2015 celebrates the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. With this momentous occasion Lincoln is hosting the 2015 Magna Carta Lecture Series; an abundance of inspiring and stimulating lectures taking place in Lincoln throughout 2015, all of which give a wealth of information on Magna Carta from a variety of contexts and perspectives. Lord Patrick Cormack, DL FSA will be starting off the 2015 Magna Carta Lecture Series with: ‘Magna Carta 2015 – The Year of Pilgrimage’. This lecture promises to fascinate its audience, and will take place in the Chapter House of the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral, a breathtaking backdrop for this Magna Carta Series lecture. Situated in the heart of Lincoln, Lincoln Castle has undergone a £22m renovation in line with the 800th anniversary celebrations of Magna Carta. Once completed, the castle will be the home of this consequential document which is one of only four original surviving copies.
Introduction to Stone Carving at the Heritage Skills Centre. On this two-day course you’ll not only cover everything from the ‘taster’ day course, but you’ll have the opportunity to design your own carving with inspiration from a selection of traditional designs and be able to produce a bespoke piece of work to take home with you. A brilliant next step for those who have been on a one-day course or for artistic beginners. Students attending the course should wear stout shoes, preferably steel toe capped boots if available, and bring overalls or old work clothes. All tools and materials will be provided. Suitable for ages 16+.
Paul Jones and Dave Kelly, Britain’s best blues duo, return with a show not to be missed at The Ropewalk. These long standing co-vocalists with The Blues Band get a big buzz out of taking things down a level, simplifying the music a little, and plying their trade as a duo, thus imbuing their very own personal and individual approaches to a dynamic, rootsy and exhilarating set of Country Blues.
Young Folk Showcase at The Ropewalk, featuring NE3Folk. NE3Folk are a band on a mission. Intricate rhythms and dissonance intertwine in subtle and detailed arrangements to sensitively deliver a wide array of traditional and original tunes.
