Kids can get creative at Countryside Lincs 21 Mar

To encourage children to embrace the countryside, families of all ages will be able to interact with farmyard animals big and small, try their hand at a variety of crafts, bake tasty foods and meet Lincolnshire producers and farmers who will demonstrate different farming methods and the origins of our favourite foods.

Rosie Crust, Education and Development Officer at the Lincolnshire Showground, said: "Last year we had a huge turnout of 3,000 people attending, tripling visitor numbers from the previous year. Countryside Lincs is designed with fun activities in mind, and it is great to be able to offer an event with an agricultural aspect, exclusively for children.

"This year we will have seven different zones to explore, all with different things to see, make and do, plus a packed timetable of entertainment in our Countryside Ring. New for this year, we'll have interactive storytelling from the popular Rhubarb Theatre, and we're bringing back tractor and trailer rides around the Showground, which was a highlight last year - and an Easter egg hunt for everyone to get involved in too."

The inspiring child-friendly event will be offering a number of farming, craft and food activities this year, including the Dog and Sheep Show, The Sheep Roadshow, a pedal tractor obstacle course, sausage making, wool spinning, seed planting, fishing and many more.

Rosie added: "We are really passionate about helping children to learn about food, farming and the countryside and we strive to inspire and educate children wherever possible. With so much to see and do at Countryside Lincs, it really is a great action-packed family day out."

Advanced tickets are now on sale for the event, packed with a huge variety of indoor and outdoor activities for youngsters to make, bake and explore, making it the perfect all-weather family day out.

Advanced tickets are priced at just £16 for a family of four, £6 for adults, £3.50 for children and under 5s go free.
