Welcome to Lincs Scene


Welcome to your October edition of Lincs Scene. The seasons are changing as the autumn leaves turn and the nights draw in. But that hasn’t stopped us from heading out and about.

We get our runners on and sign up to take on the fabulous Spires and Steeples challenge and look forward to the return of the Frequency Festival of Digital Culture, which comes to Lincoln on 20 – 29 October.

The region has plenty of events throughout the season as we approach the festive period – see our busy diary date section to find out more. Highlights include Gainsborough Old Hall Beer Festival and The Romans Are Back! at Lincoln Castle.

We take a look at the career of Jim Broadbent in ‘Leading The Way’ and in our Heritage and Culture feature we learn more about the forgotten super bomber of the First World War which was manufactured in Lincoln by Clayton and Shuttleworth.

Sadie Hirst shares her delicious early Tudor recipe ‘Tarte Owt of Lente’ and whilst we’re on the subject of food, don’t miss Simpsons Butchers, fabulous free sausages and minced beef exclusive reader offers on page 35.

Thank you for all your positive feedback on the last edition of Lincs Scene. Your input really does help us produce a more relevant and interesting read.

    Expect the unexpected when you visit the Ferry Boat at Washingborough for the first time. A trip to the High Street pub is highly recommended and we believe you will be impressed by its combination of vintage village charm and city chic.
