Free Half-Term Activities For Families In Lincoln

Lincoln BIG are working with the City of Lincoln Council and Continental Drift to provide something new and exciting for families to enjoy this February half-term, whilst helping people get out of the house and into the city centre as Covid-19 restrictions lift.

The Activities are funded through European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) / Welcome Back Fund, which has been allocated to the City of Lincoln by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

There will be numerous free activities every day (from the 12th – 20th February) at various locations across the city centre, including the Waterside Shopping Centre and the Cornhill Quarter.

All activities provided are completely free of charge and families are invited to join in the fun.

The activities on offer this half-term include:

  • Arts and craft workshops, such as making balloon animals and hula hooping
  • Makendoo workshops which include painting and making space or spring themed items (butterfly masks, flowers, rockets, stars, alien masks etc)
  • Street characters and performances including comedy chefs Hugh Fearn and Lee Whittingstall with a cookery demonstration like no other, street painter Jon Hicks, Granny Turismo, physical comedian Ian Marchant and puppetry walkabout
  • Circus acts demonstrating acrobatics, hula hooping, stilt walking and more
  • Sports such as tennis and giant cricket
  • Even a Godzilla Experience – make a mask and enter the ‘city’
