Applications for the 2022 Lincoln Christmas Market now open!
Firstly, the Events Teams would like to thank everyone who attend last year’s event. We received some great feedback and it was fantastic to be back after missing 2020! The market is estimated to have brought 276,000 visitors to the city over the four days.
This year will be the 40th year of the event so we are looking to make it even more magical. Taking place from Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th December, we invite you to help us bring the Christmas spirit back to Lincoln for yet another year. Don’t miss out on being part of the event by completing your application via the below online form:
