Poppy Exhibition at Lincoln Castle

A wave of ceramic poppies is being created at Lincoln Castle.

A sweeping arch of red poppy heads over Lincoln Castle, presented by 14-18 NOW, marks the centenary of the First World War.

Wave and Weeping Window, sculptures by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, are brought to audiences at venues across the country as part of the 14-18 NOW programme – Lincoln Castle will host The Wave and will be the only place in England where it can be seen this year.


The poppies will be on display from Saturday 28th May to Sunday 4th September.

Lincoln Castle is open from 10am – 5pm (grounds close 5.30pm).

The exhibition in the Castle grounds is free to see. Thousands are expected to visit this unique artwork over the Summer months.

Please note that the Medieval Wall Walk, Victorian Prison, and Magna Carta Vault attractions are still ticketed.
