Lincolnshire Day is an annual celebration of all things Lincolnshire bringing the traditions, history and culture of the county to life. It marks the anniversary of the ‘Lincolnshire Rising’, a revolt by Catholics against the establishment of the Church of England by Henry VIII in 1536. The county will be celebrating together by holding events, flying the Lincolnshire flag in the streets and some people will even be dressing up in yellow, to reflect the locals’ nickname of ‘Yellowbellies’. The perfect day to enjoy the region’s traditions and icons including Plum Bread, Lincolnshire sausages, Lincoln Cathedral, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese, the RAF Red Arrows and famous people like, scientist Issac Newton, politician Baroness Margret Thatcher, poet Alfred Lord Tennyson and actor Jim Broadbent. The day also gives a great opportunity for visitors to find out more about Lincoln and Lincolnshire and experience its culture for themselves. Many attractions and activities will be free on the day, including a special Lincolnshire Day Farmers’ Market in City Square.
