The Fashion Show

The Fashion Show is a time when all those who are interested can strut their stuff on the stage and get a critique from the judges and crowd for a variety of prizes, it was a lot of fun.

Meet the people and see the energy and effort that has gone into making the festival what is today and enjoy the fun and excitement of those who made it happen

Make sure when you visit you don’t forget to see the town, there is much there to see and do and the Cathedral is brilliant, the views just amazing. You will want to come back each year once you have tasted Lincoln.
