I led on the project, with my background in digital, so am particularly happy! At Visit Lincoln we managed to get some funding from a central government pot to develop a project aimed at millennial travellers in the US to encourage them to explore England outside of London – there is more to the country than the capital! We did this in a group we are part of called England’s Historic Cities, and that’s the name of the app we created which is available to download on iOS and Android for free.
The idea of the app is the bring history to life using new technology. We worked with Lincoln Cathedral to come up with stories about its history as told by famous Lincolnshire explorer Joseph Banks. Continue reading →

15 June 2015 is the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. There are four original documents of Magna Carta, which were sealed by King John in 1215, and one is in LINCOLN. ‘The Great Charter’ agreed the rule of law applied to all and recognised civil liberties. Visit Lincoln said the city is ‘the only place in the world where you can find an original copy of Magna Carta together with the Charter of the Forest … The two charters belong to Lincoln Cathedral and are housed in Lincoln Castle.’ A new visitor centre at the castle, events and public lectures will celebrate Lincoln Cathedral’s Magna Carta. More on the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary website.
On a wintry Wednesday there were plenty of warm-hearted wishes from Lincoln School of Film & Media, family and friends to today’s graduates. Congratulations from us all at the University of Lincoln to our latest alumni! Be proud.
Graduation Day marked the start of the University of Lincoln’s Year of Liberty. Vice Chancellor Professor Mary Stuart said: This year is an important landmark for the University, the Cathedral, the county and the city of Lincoln, as we mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta – the cornerstone of our democracy. In commemoration, the University is making 2015 its Year of Liberty, and I can’t think of a better way to begin than celebrating the success of our graduates.
