The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society was formed back in 1869...

Its objectives are the “furtherance, welfare and progress of the Agricultural Industry and all professions, trades and crafts connected therewith”

As a charitable organisation, we are truly passionate about promoting and supporting education, food, farming and the Countryside within Lincolnshire’s local community. 100% of surplus funds from events are gift aided back into the charity to deliver our educational work.

The Society have significantly increased our events throughout the year to reflect these aims, including Farmhouse Breakfast Week, Countryside Lincs, the Schools’ Challenge, Lincolnshire Day and much more.

In 2019, the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society celebrated its 150th Anniversary. This was a special year marking the fantastic role that the LAS has played in teaching and inspiring young people, plus the next generation about Lincolnshire’s agriculture and the importance of farming in a sustainable environment.

By becoming a member of the Society you’ll not only be helping to support good causes in agriculture and education in the county, but you will also enjoy a whole host of benefits throughout the year including entry and exclusive access to the Member’s Area at the Lincolnshire Show – plus plenty more (read more here)

Charity of the year

Our Charities 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.
