Hundreds of schoolchildren have spent the day visiting Lincoln Cathedral at the start of an eight day festival which is this year celebrating both the diamond jubilee and the forthcoming olympic games.
Activities including beekeeping, fabric-painting, bell-ringing, stonemasonry and stained-glass window-making are being demonstrated.
Over the entire festival more than 2700 youngsters from across the Lincoln diocese will travel to the cathedral, many for the first time. While there they will also be given a tour of the building and take part in an act of worship.
