YPP Joins the Knights Trail!
We are very proud to be able to annouce that Your Print Partner is an official sponsor of the Lincoln Knights’ Trail.
This ambitious public art event will be taking over the city of Lincoln from 20th May to 4th September 2017, looking to build on the historic Magna Carta celebrations that took place last year.
35 sculptures, inspired by key figures from the Battle of Lincoln – Nichola de la Haye (Custodian of Lincoln Castle) and William Marshall (Regent to the young King Henry III) – will be decorated by local artists and positioned at key sites across the city.
The event is being organised by the Lincoln Business Improvement Group, who are now starting the search for artists. Any artists, amateur or professional, interested in contributing to the Knights Trail can find out more on the Lincoln BIG website here.
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to support the Lincoln Knights Trail” said YPP Managing Director Stuart Maclaren. “The event celebrates the history of Lincoln, along with the creativity of its people, and we can’t wait to see the designs submitted by the artists.”
The Knights’ Trail will form part of the 800th anniversary commemorations of The Battle of Lincoln Fair in 1217 and the sealing of the Charter of the Forest. It will be unique to Lincoln, and help raise money for a terrific cause.
“On September 30, 2017, the sculptures will be auctioned at Lincoln Cathedral. Two-thirds of the money raised will go to our new charity partner, The Nomad Trust” said Lincoln BIG Chief Executive Matt Corrigan.
“The remaining third will be used to create a ring-fenced Art and Innovation Fund to help the city to deliver future public art and events aimed at attracting more visitors to Lincoln.”
