Go to the beach without leaving Lincoln

Get your bucket and spade ready, the beach is coming back to Lincoln city centre this summer.

Tons of golden sand is on order, brightly coloured deckchairs have been reserved, a fun roundabout is on its way and seaside favourites Punch & Judy will also be putting on a show.

Lincoln BIG’s event will be free to enjoy, with some extra charges for activities.

The makeshift beach will be set up on Lincoln’s Cornhill on July 23 and stay there until September 3.

Events will also be held in City Square, including a climbing wall, bungee trampoline and a duck race.

The beach will be right next to some of The Lincolnite‘s favourite ice cream spots. So why not complete the experience with a frozen treat?
