The beach comes to Lincoln this summer

Beach fun: Lincoln residents will be treated to some seaside fun, without the cost.

Lincoln City Centre will see the return of Lincoln BIG’s sandy beach event next month, Lincoln by the Sea, with a few added extras

From August 1, children wil be able to enjoy the beach while still in the city, as well as fairground rides, while parents can relax in deckchairs.

However, local company Playdays is also building a six-by-three metre ship to accompany the beach for kids to play on.

In addition, between August 11 and 15, youngster will be able to try Water Zorbing — an activity which involves walking on water in a large bubble.

Lincoln BIG events and promotions manager Michael Armstrong said: “The Beach proved to be a runaway success last Summer, so we’re recreating it – but this time with some great new twists.

“We’re hoping that families will make the most of it and have a great time.

“We’re inviting everyone who visits The Beach to make a real day of it by coming into the city early and also making time to pop into city centre shops and cafes.”
