Hosted by the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society (LAS), the event is taking place at the Lincolnshire Showground on Sunday 14th April between 10am and 4pm.

Offering an action-packed day filled with interactive learning experiences, exciting displays and demonstrations, Countryside Lincs will provide the opportunity for families to learn about Lincolnshire food, farming and countryside.

And this year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever, with a brand-new Floral Art and Design Show to celebrate the arrival of spring. In collaboration with the North Midlands Area of the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS), the event will boast blooming beautiful flower displays with the theme of ‘Joy’ - celebrating the joy that flowers bring.

As well as the new Floral Art ‘Joy’ Competition, the event also promises activities such as alpaca walks, tractor and trailer rides, archery, circus skills, animal petting and sheep shearing demonstrations.
