Last Chance to See Lincoln Knights on Public Display
Your Print Partner’s very own Knight has reunited with his 35 other knightly comrades for the final time at Lincoln Castle this week before they are auctioned for charity.
The Lincoln Knights’ Trail began back in May, when 36 knight sculptures were created to represent the two main figures of the 1217 Battle of Lincoln – Nicola de la Haye (Custodian of Lincoln Castle) and William Marshall (Regent to the young King Henry III) – and placed at specially chosen sites all across the city. Each sculpture was sponsored by a local business and painted by a talented artist.
Our knight, created by artist Deven Bhurke, was based on the legendary figure of Robin Hood and his famous Lincoln Green clothing and was positioned at the centre of St Paul’s Lane in the Bailgate area of Lincoln. He has his very own Twitter account – @The RobinKnight – where you can find a huge number of pictures and comments from visitors.
The reunion event at Lincoln Castle is the last chance for the public to see the sculptures on display, and will enable those who couldn’t follow the trail to see all the designs in close detail.
Tickets for the auction can be purchased here, with all funds raised going to support The Nomad Trust, and help to fund future cultural activities in the city.
