Please see detail below:

Following a lot of discussion, we have made the decision to postpone the Lincoln Cathedral Flower Festival-Vision 2020. Originally due to take place this July, the event has had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will now take place from Thursday 29 July to Monday 2 August 2021.

All events at the Cathedral have been cancelled until the end of May, and although the flower festival fell after this date, moving it to next year will ensure that the organisation and delivery of the festival can be carried out safely and also that the many thousands of anticipated visitors from across the UK can enjoy spending time at the event.
The content of the flower festival will remain the same, with visitors able to enjoy more than 130 spectacular arrangements in the stunning setting of Lincoln Cathedral.

Following this decision, we are offering full refunds to everybody that has purchased tickets.

Obviously, these are unprecedented circumstances and, as a charity, Lincoln Cathedral will be heavily affected by recent events as we rely upon event and admission ticket income for a large portion of our income. With that in mind we would be immensely grateful if you would consider the following alternatives to a full refund.

You can request to transfer your order to allow admission to the Preview Evening on Wednesday 28 July 2021.  If you are not able to use your ticket in 2021 then please may I ask that you consider allowing the Cathedral to retain all or part of your ticket price as a donation that would go to support Lincoln Cathedral beyond these uncertain times.

I understand this is an unsettling time for everybody so, of course, if you would like a full refund then please do let me know and I can process this immediately. If we do not hear from you by Monday 6 April then a full refund will be issued.

I ask that you please email events@lincolncathedral.com with your preference, I can then get this processed for you.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try and navigate these tricky circumstances.
