Lincolnshire Day has been celebrated on 1 October every year since 2006. The date was chosen to mark the anniversary of the Lincolnshire Uprising, a revolt by Catholics to King Henry VIII’s plans to establish the Church of England in 1536.
To mark Lincolnshire Day 2021 the leaders of North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County councils – Cllr Rob Waltham, Cllr Philip Jackson and Cllr Martin Hill – hosted a special civic celebration at Normanby Hall to strengthen ties across the whole of the historic county.
Make the most of Lincolnshire Day with free family activities. View or download the activity pack, which includes colouring, quizzes and games.
