It maybe September but Christmas has come early. It has today been announced by the City of Lincoln Council that this years Lincoln Christmas market is set to go ahead.

The Christmas market started with just 11 stalls, and now it has grown to over 200 stalls. With more than 250,000 visitors expected, it will bring much needed tourism for local businesses.
The timings of the 2021 Lincoln Christmas market have now been confirmed as follows:
Thursday, December 2- 12pm-9.30pm
Friday, December 3 – 10am-9.30pm
Saturday, December 4 – 10am-9.30pm
Sunday, December 5 – 10am-7pm
Stallholders are once again asked to dress in Victorian style outfits.
Councillor Neil Murry, Portfolio Holder for Economic Growth at City of Lincoln Council, said: “We are happy to announce we are now moving forward at pace with planning for the 2021 Lincoln Christmas Market.
“This means full steam ahead now with putting all arrangements in place, including the relevant safety measures and a series of events to ensure fun for the entire family.
“Obviously there is the caveat that you would expect, namely if there were another national lockdown or other government restrictions that prevented the market continuing – but these are events outside our control and hopefully by early December there will be a very small likelihood of this happening.
“I am excited to both attend the market and share what our historic city has to offer.”
Lincoln Christmas market has been an important date on the event calendar since 1982.
