– Acting Diocesan Director of Education, Paul Thompson
The Church Schools Festival is a very special occasion where so many children can experience the beauty of Lincoln Cathedral. It is wonderful to see the cathedral alive with children enjoying themselves, joining together to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics, and realising just how wonderful it is to be part of the church school family. My sincerest gratitude goes to all who have made this possible in the Diocesan and Cathedral staffs, as well as the army of volunteers who work so hard to ensure this is a truly memorable event."
Hundreds of schoolchildren are visiting Lincoln Cathedral for an eight day festival which this year is celebrating the Queen's diamond jubilee. They are trying out activities including beekeeping, stonemasonry and stained-glass making.
