Hear from acclaimed authors at The Collection and Lincoln Drill Hall in a fascinating series of talks promising revolutionary thinking from some of Britain's best known historians and historical fiction writers.

This year's festival explores the theme of 'revolution', taking as its inspiration the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918 which first gave some British women the right to vote.

From the suffragettes to the Pilgrim Fathers, the Big Bang to Punk Rock, a line-up of high profile guest authors will share their perspectives on the forces that have shaped profound societal changes in Britain and beyond down the centuries.

Lincoln Book Festival places history at its heart, bringing some of Britain's best-loved novelists, historians, biographers, broadcasters, academics and public figures to the historic cathedral city of Lincoln for a week-long literary festival devoted to the best history writing and historical fiction.

Guest authors appearing at Lincoln Book Festival 2018 include Michael Morpurgo, Tracy Borman, Marcus Chown, Rebecca Fraser and Sally Nicholls, among others. Alongside the headline author events there are free workshops, competitions, schools activities and local history talks, plus family friendly fringe events.

Most events are hosted at The Collection or the iconic Lincoln Drill Hall theatre in the city's Cultural Quarter.
