Lincoln Monster Invasion

Oct 23
23rd October 2023 - 29th October 2023

Cast your eyes to the sky to catch a glimpse of gigantic monsters towering of the city of Lincoln this October half term!

The Lincoln Monster Invasion will give you the chance to experience Lincoln a little differently this Halloween. Eight gigantic inflatable monsters will invade Lincoln's rooftops from Castle Hill, all the way down to the University of Lincoln. 

As night falls, the monsters will illuminate - follow the trail around Lincoln city centre on a spooky glow-in-the-dark adventure.

Look out for some extra special guests during the weekend too:

- On Friday, 27 October, Ghostbusters will be joined by the Ecto-1 in Lincoln’s Cornhill.
- On Saturday 28 October, the Ghostbusters will be out and about protecting the city streets in search for the monsters in Castle Square.
- And on Sunday 29 October, there will be a 'Monster Mash' flash mob located in the Cornhill area
