Home Time for Education Knights

Lincolnshire schools gathered at Waterside Shopping Centre for a special closing ceremony on 27 September 2017. The event marked the conclusion of the Lincoln Knights’ Education Trail, which saw 42 schools from across the county design and decorate their very own half-sized versions of the Lincoln Knights.

Organised by social enterprise The EBP, the Education Trail ran alongside the main Lincoln Knights’ Trail throughout the summer and tens of thousands of people have been wowed by the talent and creativity of Lincolnshire students.

The Hollywood actor with Lincoln connections Colin McFarlane, gave the trail a fitting end by ceremoniously handing the knights back to their schools. Whilst the main Lincoln Knights will be auctioned off for The Nomad Trust at Lincoln Cathedral on Saturday 30 September, their half-sized counterparts are now in their forever homes in schools up and down the county.

Elaine Lilley, Chief Executive of The EBP said, “We have been blown away by the standard of the work that the students of our county have produced. The public reaction has been incredible and schools now get to proudly display their knights as a lasting legacy of their involvement in this unique creative arts project.”

The EBP is proud to have been the official education partner for the Lincoln Knights’ Trail, in partnership with Lincoln Business Improvement Group (Lincoln BIG) and Wild in Art. Waterside Shopping Centre and Siemens provided valuable sponsorship of the Education Programme, with Ruddocks also providing generous print support.
