Live at Lincoln Castle concerts featuring Crowded House, Jess Glynne, Paloma Faith, Kaiser Chiefs, Madness and Gregory Porter attract 28,000 visitors





More 28,000 people have enjoyed six concerts over the last three weekends for the first ‘Live at Lincoln Castle’ series.

Promoters Cuffe and Taylor put on six headline acts - Crowded House, Jess Glynne, Paloma Faith, Kaiser Chiefs, Madness and Gregory Porter - at the venue in June.

The shows at Lincoln Castle have drawn visitors from far and wide. This was particularly noted at the Gregory Porter concert with fans travelling from America just to watch his performance at the castle.

The promoters said that the ‘intimate setting of the castle wowed fans and artists alike, who were in awe of the magnificent, historic backdrop’ and had a tourism boost for the city.

There was also much praise for the addition of a BSL signer at every show, making the concerts accessible for everyone.

Mark Harrison, of Cuffe and Taylor, said: “We are all delighted at the positive reaction to our first summer concert season at Lincoln Castle. We’ve had six very successful nights with some of the best live music artists on the touring circuit.
