Take a break in our Dad's Crèche at Countryside Lincs 04 Apr

Take a break from the activities of Countryside Lincs and enjoy a pit stop in our Dad's Crèche this Sunday. Located next to the clock tower, dads (and mums!) are welcome to enjoy a refreshing tipple from Ferry Ales Brewery who are bringing their real ale and lager bar, including their RAF100 themed Bastion English Pale Ale and Just Jane Bitter. There will also be Blonde Golden Fleece, Lincoln Lager, cider and wine available. Lincolnshire Echo will also be giving visitors a rare glimpse at the first ever editions of the Lincolnshire Echo from 1893 and will be giving away goody bags which will include some tasty treats!

Back for its fourth year running, the hands-on family-fun day is focussed on offering the young - and young at heart – the chance to get up, close and personal with animals big and small, as well as turn their hand to crafts, try a range of local foods and get a taste of life on the farm with tractor rides and exhibitions.

Tickets are now on sale for the event, which is open from 10am – 4pm on Sunday 8 April at the Lincolnshire Showground. The family fun-day is 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 £18 for a family of four, £7 for adults, £4 for children and under 5’s are free.
