Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 09 Dec

Thank you for all of your support during 2019, it's been an incredible year!

As a small team of just over twenty hard-working people, we’ve hosted over 300 events, worked with 50 new organisers and held 6 of our very own events. The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society celebrated its 150th anniversary, the Epic Centre it's 10th birthday and we've just begun work to renovate the Exhibition Hall - soon to be known as the EXO Centre. More details to be revealed soon!

But most importantly, we’ve engaged with an incredible 13,000 children throughout the year during our educational activities including the Schools’ Challenge, Lincolnshire Day, Tractors into Schools and Farmhouse Breakfast Week. Education is at the heart of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society's charitable objectives, and by arranging or attending an event at the Showground you're helping us to continue this work - so thank you.

We look forward to seeing you in 2020. 

Jayne Southall, CEO
