Mystery Plays return to Cathedral setting

There are now just a few days until the 2016 Lincoln Mystery Plays take to the stage at the Cathedral, but there is still time to get your tickets.

Lincoln Mystery Plays EMN-160713-155934001

This ancient tradition, performed only once every four years, is in the Cathedral Cloisters over nine evening performances, from August 3 to 13.

Sit back under the stars and the majesty of Cathedral’s towers to experience stories as ancient as time itself.

With vigour, humanity and humour the company sweeps the onlooker along from Creation, through the highs and lows of Noah and the Nativity, on to the poignant life of Jesus and finally to Doomsday.

The Plays open up all aspects of humanity, exploring a wide range of emotions and responses which connect deeply with our lives today.

Tickets are available from or the Lincoln Cathedral Shop on 01522 561644.
