The Kings Wardrobe - A FREE Family Trail
Sir Lawrence the Lion is being crowned King! Visit his friends in your area and see what they give him to wear for the coronation. Try them on yourself, complete mini-challenges and take selfies.
A Free, Family Coronation Trail comes to Uphill Lincoln!
To celebrate the coronation, families in Lincoln will be able to have a great day out with this free, augmented reality storytrail.
Lincoln BIG have teamed up with digital experience company High Street Safari to run a free family trail in Lincoln. In this innovative experience, the animal kingdom is having a coronation of its own and who else would be crowned king but Sir Lawrence the Lion. Families get to meet 10 of the King’s best friends on the trail and see what they each suggest he wear for the coronation – spoiler alert, they’re not all very sensible!
As players scan QR codes at each stop they get to do mini challenges, see the suggested item and try it on themselves in the ‘selfie studio’. When players have met them all they get to see the fully prepared King in augmented reality and download a free e-book of the story’s conclusion.
The idea behind the event is to encourage families to come into Lincoln with a free, exciting event that gets kids out and exercising without even realising it. Shopping parents will love being able to get the kids on board, and families looking for a relaxing day out can encourage kids to have a screen-time break and get rewarded at the end.
The King’s Wardrobe trail is located at ten stops around the Uphill Lincoln, positioned so that families can discover hidden parts of the city. The trail takes about forty-five minutes to complete but can be completed in more than one visit. It’s completely free for families and groups to take part in.
The unique technology used on the trail means that families don’t need to download an app or sign up to anything, even better it works on any smart device. While it has been designed so that there is no need to go inside the venues, some participating businesses are offering discounts and vouchers to come in while you visit.
The trail runs from 17th April to 2nd June.

About High Street Safari:
High Street Safari was set up to create a unique high street family experience for families. The trails work by utilising QR codes, without the need for players to download or sign up to anything. The trail consists of 10 vinyl window characters with QR codes that local businesses, as well as cultural and public venues, will host.
Families will be able to start the trail by scanning any of the characters. For families on the trail they will be able engage with the experience by scanning each QR code, choosing what happens in the story and seeing the characters in AR. Younger children will delight in spotting the colourful displays in windows and older (and grown-up children) will engage with the story. Everyone will have fun taking silly selfies in augmented reality. They can do this in their own time and pace.
