Fun fair returning to Lincoln in September

A COVID-safe fairground on South Common

Lincoln Fun Fair will return on the South Common next month in a COVID-19 safe event.

The fair will open on Friday, September 11 and run until Saturday, September 19, but will be closed on Sunday and Monday.

It will be open from 6pm to 10pm on weekdays and 2pm to 10pm on Saturday.

Entry will be £1 and a new “exhilarating ride” will be there for the first time ever.

Lincoln Funfairs said: “Despite many funfairs around the country still being cancelled, we are pleased to announce Lincoln September Fun Fair will be back and a COVID-19 safe event.”

“Many thanks to the City of Lincoln Council and the Showmen’s Guild for working tirelessly to make this event happen under difficult circumstances.”

More updates will follow, but organisers are promising a COVID-19 safe event.

Questions were raised about how the fair was allowed to go ahead, but planners say the security fence around the outside of the fair will allow for crowd control.
