We Heart St. Valentine’s Day

Lincoln BIG has teamed-up with the Healthy High Streets Campaign to spring a Valentine's surprise on city shoppers and visitors this February half term.

Love is in the Air at The Business Improvement Group - which is getting noticed for its special city trails - and shoppers and visitors to the city between February 11 and 19 are being challenged to see if they can spot something new.

We are planting five fabulous red hearts at hotspots around the city and we want people to have fun taking selfies with them and then put themselves in the running for some great prizes.

All they have to do is get snapping and post their selfies, and message, on Twitter or Instagram – using the Hashtag #lovelincoln.

We’re encouraging as many people as possible to get involved because we have a bumper crop of fantastic daily prizes to give away, as well as a top prize of a stay in one of Lincoln’s top hotels.

Lincoln BIG Events and Promotions Assistant Jess Wickham said: “Our levy payers have generously thrown their weight behind this initiative. Sponsors include Marks & Spencer, which is providing champagne and chocolates, two prizes of afternoon tea for two people and beauty products.  

Lincolnshire Co-op is donating a bunch of flowers, Debenhams champagne and chocolates and St Marks Shopping Centre is giving us a £50 Debenhams’ voucher. The Castle View Indian is donating a meal for two people and a bottle of Prosecco, and Bunty’s Tea Room in Steep Hill is providing afternoon tea for two.

Mamas and Papas is also supporting our fun event with bag full of goodies worth £35 and The White Hart Hotel in Bailgate has sponsored our top prize of Bed & Breakfast for two people.

“It will be awarded to the person who tracks down and takes selfies with all five of our Valentine’s hearts.”

The hearts will be installed in five different locations around the city centre at the end of this week, so people should look out for them from Friday, February 10 and post their photos by February 19. 


How to enter

1) Take your selfie and upload to Twitter or Instagram
​2) Use #LoveLincoln

Collect all 5 hearts and upload your selfies by Sunday 19th February to be entered into the top prize draw to win a luxury weekend break staying at The White Hart Hotel.
