Education At The Showground

Here at The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, we’re dedicated to educating our future generations about food, farming and the countryside while continuing to support and encourage the agricultural community around us.

Agriculture is key in Lincolnshire and we are keen to further, advance and facilitate opportunities to engage our future generations with food and farming. We're committed to providing a gateway to broaden minds and help develop awareness of the county we live in, including farming practices and the wonderful foods that are produced in Lincolnshire.

Farming in the classroon

We’re pleased to be able to offer local Schools funding to contribute towards transport costs and giving school groups the opportunity to visit farms and other sites related to agriculture. The funding is also available to help Lincolnshire schools develop their own gardens and allotments.

To be considered for a grant, Lincolnshire schools will be asked to submit a simple outline of the proposed visit, including the purpose, age range of pupils and numbers involved and detail how the curriculum will be enriched by the visit. A member of the team will then send you the application form if appropriate.

If you’re interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, then contact Rosie Crust on education@lincolnshireshowground.co.uk or 01522 522900, who will be happy to give you more information

Education Funding

We're building a great relationship with the University of Lincoln by supporting the students with their studies from first year through to final year students.

First year students analyse the Lincolnshire Show website for functionality and appeal and compare it to other agricultural show websites. The second year students are involved by visiting the Showground on a field trip to put all their theory into practice in the workplace and the third year students work alongside our marketing team on a consultancy project, designed to bridge the gap between the classroom and industry and help to prepare students for future employability.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for allowing several of your team to assist across many different modules this term at the university. The students and I value the input and expertise provided by your team so much and we know it is beneficial for student future career prospects. We are very grateful."
