A few dates for your diary...

Saturday 22nd October 2016: is a busy day in the food calendar with the increasingly popular Lincoln Sausage Festival being held at Lincoln Castle; and a quick dash into the next County will take you to The Bramley Apple Festival being held in Southwell Minster, Nottinghamshire, where Cottage proprietors, Andrew and Ronnie Ownsworth will be selling their cold pressed rapeseed oil and gift packs perfect for Christmas.

Now that the cold weather is starting to arrive (I didn't want to get out of my cosy bed this morning) our thoughts are increasingly turning to Christmas...

Thursday 17th November 2016: Start the Christmas countdown in Lincoln, where an Olly Murs tribute act will entertain the crowds in the St Marks shopping Centre before the Christmas lights are switched on at 6.30pm.

Thursday 1st December - Sunday 4th December 2016: Catch up with your Christmas shopping and experience the atmosphere at Lincoln's famous Christmas Market.
