Lincoln IMP Trail

Our third sculpture trail is coming to Lincoln city centre summer 2021.

Celebrating our IMP

We are bringing the story of our IMP to our High Street and want everyone to get involved.


Celebrating Lincoln

This is a mass participation public art event to celebrate, Lincoln, its art, culture and heritage.


Our cheeky chappies will be out on the streets of Lincoln this Summer 2021.


You’re invited to be part of a dazzling attraction for the city’s streets in 2021.


The selection process has taken place and the artists have been informed.


EBP is working with Lincolnshire schools to learn about the symbol of our city across a variety of subjects.

Lincoln IMP Trail 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!
