Jaunts in June - what’s on this month?

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say, I can’t believe it’s June already! Where have the last 6 months gone? Hopefully the weather will now start behaving so all the amazing shows, fetes, festivals and events planned for this month don’t get rained off or become muddy quagmires.

wednesday 19th - thursday 20th june

One of the biggest highlights of the county’s annual events takes place on the 19th & 20th June. ‘The Lincolnshire Show’, is a two day celebration of all things agricultural, something us Yellowbellys do pretty well. 80% of our county is farmed and our region is responsible for producing 25% of the nations vegetables! A large majority of Lincolnshire inhabitants will have visited the show at least once, especially if you ever went to school in Lincoln, so you don’t need me to tell you what happens, but my top tips are comfy shoes, sun cream, a hat & an umbrella - useful when it’s hot too, as there is never enough shade to sit under, and if you live in town, get the bus. There's a special service provided by Stagecoach, starting at Lincoln Central Bus Station, with stops along the way. It drops you off right at the entrance, so no trying to remember where you parked your car you can enjoy a glass or two of Pimms.

Thursday 6th June

Thursday 6th June is the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy, with many events throughout the county commemorating this historical anniversary. The International Bomber Command Centre, located at the top of Canwick Hill, will be hosting an evening including Prosecco reception, 3 course dinner, live music & the lighting of a Beacon at the Spire. The Petwood Hotel, located in Woodhall Spa, is planning to celebrate with an afternoon of live music on The Terrace

Sunday 9th June

Lincoln may be a small city, but its big on history, and I LOVE history, I wanted to be an archeologist when I was little, and so on the 9th June I’ve finally booked myself on one of the Lincoln Free Walking Tours. I usually see the guides leading the walks around and about uphill Lincoln, yellow umbrella in hand, when I’m working at the weekends. These award winning walking tours are designed to be fun and engaging, and are run by people who are passionate about Lincoln’s heritage. There's a range of different tours including an Industry & Innovation Tour and Historic Pubs Walking Tour. (no i'm not doing the pub one, I'm going Roman)

15th June - 30th June

15th June - 30th June sees the return of the North Kesteven Walking Festival, now in its 10th year. This is a two-week walking celebration, allowing you to get out and explore over 70 led walks, scattered across 356 square miles of picturesque villages, medieval churches and thriving landscapes. Choose from sunrise & sunset walks, Father’s Day and summer solstice walks, railway rambles, dog walks, alpaca walks, riverside walks and pubs walks.

saturday 15th june

15th June is a busy weekend, as amongst other county wide activities, it’s also The Dragons Boat Race, a charity event organised by The Ringrose Law Group in aid of LIVES. The Brayford Waterfront comes alive with excited crowds as they cheer on teams from various businesses from across the region, competing in over 20 boats races along a 200 meter racecourse.
