Lincolnshire Agricultural Society

Hello - we're the Lincolnshire Showground.

Home of the historical Lincolnshire Show, our incredibly diverse venue is so much more than just a showground. For more than 125 years our business has been a pinnacle within the community, providing the perfect space and flexibility for a whole host of events.

Our 270 acres of multifunctional space is based just four miles north of Lincoln city centre, and we're proud to have gained a reputation for both organising and hosting outstanding events, plus our year round Education programme.

The Lincolnshire Showground is owned by the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, a charitable organisation established back in 1869. Its objectives are to educate the county about food, farming and a sustainable environment.

Did you know that 100% of all profits generated from our venue hire go towards the support of our charitable work, which funds and supports agricultural education and countryside learning.

Becoming a Lincolnshire Agricultural Society member helps our charity to promote food, farming and the Countryside to school pupils, consumers and farmers themselves through events, advice and a support network available to all.

Charity of the year

Our Charity of the Year for 2020 is St Barnabas Hospice.

St Barnabas Hospice

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is a local, highly regarded charity that touches the lives of many across Lincolnshire. They provide specialist care and support, including end of life care to adults living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. Their dedicated, professionally trained nursing staff along with the help of a large team of support staff and volunteers offers everyone in the community the chance to receive the very best care available.

Last year they cared for and supported over 10,500 people across the county living with a terminal or life-limiting illness. The diverse range of care is free of charge to the patients we care for and their families and carers.
