Here’s to an ‘Epic’ year and a Decade of amazing events… 14 Jan

The award-winning venue, which sits at the heart of the 270 acre Showground, will take centre stage for a line-up of outstanding events and exhibitions to showcase its anniversary.

The Epic Centre - one of the UK’s largest green purpose built conference centres - first opened its doors in 2009 following a £7m investment, helping to secure the future of the charity and opening a new world of opportunities for the Showground and the County. 

Built to the highest environmental standards, the sustainable timber built building demonstrated the latest developments in energy efficiency, complete with a biomass boiler and a sedum roof for rain water harvesting.

Over the past 10 years the venue has played host to the County Wedding Show, Lincolnshire Business Awards, BeVox Concerts, Joules and Boden clothing Sales, plus the much loved Lincolnshire Food and Gift Fair and many more.  It really has been a decade of amazing events that have been enjoyed by thousands of visitors each and every year..

The unique EPIC centre has transformed the way in which the Showground is used, with a growing programme of events and increased educational activity to support the charitable objectives of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society.  It’s used week-in, week-out for a variety of events ranging from balls, proms and parties, through to weddings of 800+ guests, exhibitions and corporate events.

To commemorate the special anniversary there will be a range of special offers and an exciting calendar of brand new events, as 2019 marks a momentous year of celebrations.  Happy birthday EPIC Centre – and a decade of amazing events!
