The Lincoln Cathedral Flower Festival will take place in August 2022 celebrating 950 years of Lincoln Cathedral, and the visionaries who had the inspiration to build such a wonderful building and those who followed, changing our lives throughout history.

Stunning displays will blossom in every area of the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral, bringing it to life in a unique and inspiring way.

The festival will celebrate the life and works of St Hugh of Lincoln, as well as many other notable visionaries whose ideas and actions have shaped the world we live in and changed our lives.

The displays of the Lincoln Flower Festival 2022 will cover poetry, theatre, film, and fashion, alongside history, exploration, invention, and more. There will be something for everyone, from the Mayflower Pilgrims’ journey to the New World to the moon landing and even Harry Potter!
