Teaching children about food, farming and Lincolnshire’s heritage is the driving force behind exciting family event Countryside Lincs, which returns this Easter.
On Sunday, April 10, at the Lincolnshire Showground, from 10am to 4pm, children and their families will be able to interact with farmyard animals big and small, try their hand at a variety of crafts and meet local producers and farmers who will demonstrate different farming methods, showing where some of our favourite foods come from.
Rosie Crust, education and development officer for the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, said: “We have six different zones for children to explore.
“New this year is our farmers market which will host some great Lincolnshire produce.
“Children will also be able to get involved with our Easter egg hunt, watch impressive falconry displays, learn how to make sausages, bread and cheese with local suppliers, get hands-on with creative activities and even have a ride around the Showground on our big tractor and trailer!
“Last year, Countryside Lincs proved to be a much-loved event as we had 1,000 young visitors attend - double our expected numbers.
“We launched Countryside Lincs as we were keen to have an event which appealed purely to children.
“We have such a wide variety of events at the Showground all year round, but this is our first which we have created exclusively for kids.”
Advanced tickets go on sale for the event at the end of February.
Under 5’s go free and tickets will also be available on the gate.
