Meet Lucy – the dragon making Lincoln Castle her lair this summer

Lucy the Dragon is set to land in the castle grounds from Saturday 2 April and will provide a backdrop for a packed summer of events.

The giant dragon will be a sight to behold, seemingly breaking through a section of the medieval castle wall.

To help families make the most of their visit to meet Lucy this Easter, visitors can follow clues and solve puzzles to become a Victorian Dragon Hunter.

You can also dive into an adventure story inspired by Lucy herself, with a Castle Activity Book packed with puzzles, games, colouring sheets, and stickers.

Lucy is completely free to view as part of entry to the castle grounds until she leaves on Sunday 9 October 2022.

Throughout the summer, Lucy will be keeping a watchful eye over all the events at Lincoln Castle, including storytelling quests, Jubilee celebrations, food, and drink festivities and much more.

Lincoln Castle events officer, Stephanie Beecher, said: “When planning our events for this year we really wanted to recognise the role Lincoln Castle’s grounds have played over the past eighteen months as a welcoming, safe, green space.

“Building on that sense of community that the grounds have provided, our events really focus on bringing people together in celebration; from family events and dog friendly weekends, to marking the Platinum Jubilee and imagining a future that never was with the return of the Steampunk Festival.

“It all kicks off with Lucy the Dragon. We’re so excited to see her come crashing through the castle walls and then stay with us right through to October providing a pretty awe-inspiring backdrop for all our events!”
