Lincoln Imporium

4 May @ 11:00 am - 6 May @ 5:00 pm


Explore the wonders of the Lincoln Imporium: Where earthly wonders meet otherworldly curiosities, but beware the allure of mischief lurking in this interactive street performance.

The Lincoln Imporium is a travelling emporium that visits once in a blue moon. And you’re in luck, it’s in town for the new Lincoln Festival of History!

Peddling an eclectic array of wares and curios, the Lincoln Imporium offers goods from the worlds beyond Earth and is manned by a merchant of great, self-proclaimed repute.

Whether you seek ointments or trinkets, perfumes or fortunes, the Lincoln Imporium has it all. However, be cautious, as what seems like honest sales patter, may give way to mischief and trickery.

Throughout the festival, the enigmatic merchant will be roaming the streets of Lincoln, where you will be invited to take part in dice games, tarot readings and treasure hunts. You may even get a coin reward or a chance to spin the wheel of mischief…

The Lincoln Imp is a creature of great inspiration for the merchant, being part-imp themselves,  so you may also be asked to join their campaign to #FreeTheLincolnImp.
