Sand in the city! Lincoln beach back for the summer

This story is over

Tonnes of real seaside sand have been delivered to Lincoln city centre to bring the fun of the beach to shoppers and residents.

The weather may have been a touch on the gloomy side since its arrival this week, but the attractions colourful each chairs, children’s beach toys and rides are bringing a welcome splash of fun to City Square.

Lincoln by the Sea will be free to enjoy, with some charges to children’s rides, until the end of the summer.

Families will be able to play in the sand, sit on fancy deck chairs and enjoy the fairground rides.

A Punch and Judy festival will take place on July 29 and 30 and more fun activities will also be on throughout the summer.

Lincoln by the Sea is funded and organised by Lincoln BIG.
