Hundreds of schoolchildren are spending the day at Lincoln Cathedral for an eight day festival which is this year celebrating both the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games.
Paul Thompson is the Acting Diocesan Director of Education and has organised this year's festival. He has been explaining what the aim of the eight day celebration is and how much he enjoys seeing the children arrive and experience the Cathedral for the first time.
