Add to Planner


Celebrate Lincoln's vibrant fashion culture with a full 8 days of fashion events, with an RAF theme, in venues across Lincoln city centre, in partnership with Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

Lincoln has a fantastic fashion offer with global brands alongside independent designer labels from the south High Street to Bailgate. The Waterside Shopping Centre and St Marks Shopping Centre are hubs for shopping in the city and a vibrant fashion course runs at the University of Lincoln.

To celebrate clothing fashion - not to mention health & beauty, hairdressing, photography, shoes, and design, Lincoln city centre will be filled with events and entertainment for all to enjoy. 

The theme for Lincoln Fashion Week this year will be aviation, marking the centenary of the founding of the Royal Air Force.
