Each church offers a unique experience that can include stunning architecture, stained glass, fascinating wood carvings, historic monuments, graveyards full of stories and traditional church organs (many of which the public are welcome to play). Many are also located in the Lincolnshire Wolds National Landscape, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Alongside all of this is the welcome that the church volunteers bring to the event. They bring their knowledge of local history, delicious homemade cakes and lunches, plant and book sales, flower displays, exhibitions and bell ringing.

Visit the website at www.churchesfestival.info where you will find a page for each church taking part (easily reached via the A-Z listing page). A handy Google pin map will help you to plan your tour. You can also browse the 44 page brochure as a PDF here, or order a hard copy.

We look forward to seeing you in May!
