Lincoln Cathedral is one of the largest and finest medieval churches in the world. Its setting - on top of the hill overlooking the city and far beyond - is rivalled only by Durham Cathedral.

William the Conqueror ordered work to begin on the Cathedral in 1072 under the supervision of Bishop Remigius. After a fire in 1141, the Cathedral was rebuilt, and again after a catastrophic earthquake in 1185. Each rebuild saw it increase in size, and in the thirteenth and fourteenth Centuries it continued to grow steadily. Today it is a magnificent gothic masterpiece without equal.

Lincoln Cathedral contains some rare glass, notably in the round 13th Century Dean's Eye window and the later Bishop's Eye. A magnificent library, built by Christopher Wren, houses a particularly fine collection of ancient books dating back to the tenth Century. One of the four copies of Magna Carta (1215AD) used to be housed there, but now resides in the Castle nearby.

New Jazz 5 and John Holland have many years experience in promoting concerts and organizing tours, festivals and educational projects in and around Lincoln. Jazz concerts are held regularly at the newly-refurbished Lincoln Drill Hall, but John Holland and his creative team are also keen to promote high-quality music and build audiences in a variety of other places, including the Cathedral.
