Date: Thursday 28 – Sunday 31 October

Time: All Day

Location: St Marks Square (Garden)

Created by award-winning arts company Arch 468, HERstory is an audio storytelling experience that uncovers the stories of women usually hidden from history.

These are the real stories of women from Lincoln and beyond. Listen as they open up about living through the COVID-19 pandemic. Insightful and inspiring, HERstory carves out a space where women can be heard. We invite you to enjoy a meditative moment in St Marks Square Garden, discovering stories that celebrate the truth and power of women all around us.

New Lincoln stories will be premiered at Frequency Festival. No booking needed, just bring your headphones and scan the QR codes with each photo portrait to hear their narrative.
