Lincoln Imp Trail

Saturday 3rd July to Wednesday 8th September 2021

We’re really looking forward to bringing the IMP Trail to the streets of Lincoln in Summer 2021!

The city will come alive this summer with the arrival of 30 individually designed, hand painted Imps as part of the Lincoln Imp Trail. 

The Trail will run from Saturday 3rd July to Wednesday 8th September 2021 with thirty Imps being displayed throughout the city, and one taking up residence at the seaside in Skegness.

Five ‘Roaming’ Imps will move among shops and businesses – peeping out from window display across the city. All 31 Trail Imps and 5 Roaming Imps will be on display with the Education Trail Imps, decorated by schools across the county and managed by our Education Partner, EBP.

We challenge you to find them all!
