The Lincoln Knights' Education Trail!

The Lincoln Knights’ Education Trail was organised by The EBP, in partnership with Wild in Art and Lincoln BIG, with sponsorship from Waterside Shopping Centre, Siemens and generous print support from Ruddocks.

More than 40 primary, secondary and special schools from all over Lincolnshire participated in the programme which saw a banner of half-size knights, all designed and decorated by schools, join the main Lincoln Knights’ Trail this summer. With the help of an extensive resource pack, thousands of children have learnt about some of the fascinating characters involved in the Battle of Lincoln and how our often-overlooked local history has helped shaped the world we live in today.

The Education Trail made its debut at this year’s Lincolnshire Show. The sculptures were then displayed at Waterside Shopping CentreLincoln Central LibraryThe Collection, the Museum of Lincolnshire LifeLincoln Cathedral, the Nomad Trust Shop on Sincil Street, Lincoln Castle and the Usher Gallery throughout the summer. 

From 5-27 September the knights were all brought together for a special reunion event at Waterside Shopping Centre, before they were returned to their respective schools.
