Welcome to the Knights' Trail!

The Lincoln Knights’ Education Trail is organised by The EBP, in partnership with Wild in Art and Lincoln BIG, with sponsorship from Waterside Shopping Centre, Siemens and generous print support from Ruddocks.

More than 40 primary, secondary and special schools from all over Lincolnshire are participating in the programme which will see a banner of half-size knights, all designed and decorated by schools, join the main Lincoln Knights’ Trail this summer. With the help of an extensive resource pack, thousands of children have been busy learning about some of the fascinating characters involved in the Battle of Lincoln and how our often-overlooked local history has helped shaped the world we live in today.

The Education Trail made its debut at this year’s Lincolnshire Show and the sculptures are now on display at Waterside Shopping CentreLincoln Central LibraryThe Collection, the Museum of Lincolnshire LifeLincoln Cathedral, the Nomad Trust Shop on Sincil Street, Lincoln Castle and the Usher Gallery until 3 September. From 5-27 September, all of the education knights will be brought together in Waterside Shopping Centre for a special reunion event before they are returned to schools.

FUNDRAISING 

Fundraising can be a great way to get your whole school and local community involved in the project whilst raising money for your knight and The Nomad Trust, the trail's charity partner. 

Funds will go towards the new Nomad Centre which will serve the most vulnerable in our community. The proposed centre will look to offer emergency direct access accommodation, supported accommodation as well as day services. The day services will give service users access to mental health support, nurses/GPs, vocational training as well as meals, laundry and washing facilities etc. The Nomad Trust need all the help they can get to create this fantastic facility which is anticipated to cost £3.1 million to build!

Please contact Emma Welbourn on 01522 574100 or emma.welbourn@the-ebp.co.uk for further information on fundraising.

The main Lincoln Knights’ Trail is a Wild in Art trail brought to you by Lincoln BIG in support of the Nomad Trust.
