RECORD-BREAKING ATTENDANCE AT COUNTRYSIDE LINCS 2023! 20 Apr

Over 6,000 visitors – an all-time record - arrived onto the Lincolnshire Showground on Sunday 16 April for the ever-popular family-oriented Countryside Lincs event! Jam packed with hands-on activities, experiences and workshops, Countryside Lincs is always an immersive and unforgettable day out for families.

The sun came out over the Showground, where eight different interactive zones saw families making memories and experiencing elements of country life – such as handling both farm and exotic animals, baking, trying new sports and circus skills, learning about traditional skills such as making flour and not forgetting the breath-taking attractions in the Countryside Ring.

Rosie Crust, Education Development Manager at the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society – home to the Lincolnshire Showground, said: “Countryside Lincs is a firm favourite in the Society’s calendar, and we love putting on such a fun, action-packed and friendly event – whilst connecting families and children with all things animals, food, farming, and countryside related.

“We know that getting hands-on is what children enjoy most, and the zones all provided so many activities and memorable experiences – all mostly included in the ticket price, providing excellent value for money! We’ve had such positive feedback from visitors for all the workshops and exhibits, that offered them a taste of so many interesting activities. Also, the acts in the Countryside Ring, along with the variety of excellent food on offer, provided a fantastic finale to the holidays.”

With thanks to our event sponsor Pennells Garden Centres.
