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.

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.

More about our charity Meet the team

Here at the Lincolnshire Showground we are passionate about the environment. We have taken steps to reduce our energy consumption, lowering our carbon emissions for our loved local community. As a business we have invested in LED lighting. This will make a huge difference to the environment and this is just the start of our sustainable journey.

To help us invest in these energy saving measures we had support from Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire. Through this we received a grant of £12,300.93 to enable us to make these changes. 

The £9.2 million Smart Energy programme has been part funded by the European Regional Development fund. This is enabling small to medium businesses across the Greater Lincolnshire area invest in energy saving technology.

Dedicated to Education

We’re dedicated to educating our future generations about food, farming and the countryside while continuing to support and encourage the agricultural community around us. 

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.

Charity of the year

Our Charity of the Year for 2022 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.
