Fun fair returns to Lincoln South Common

Check out the rides!

Lincoln’s fun fair returns to the South Common on Friday evening with a range of thrilling rides and traditional fairground favourites, such as hot dogs and candy floss.

The bi-annual event was postponed in September last year due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but it will be making a comeback when it runs between Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 22.

It will be open between 6pm and 10pm on weekdays and 2pm-10pm on Saturday, but closed on Sunday. Entry is priced at just £1 and there is free parking onsite.

The fair is run under the banner box the Showman’s Guild and one of the organisers Ashley Wood told The Lincolnite: “I am really excited and looking forward to it. We have missed being in Lincoln as we have been coming here for generations.

“We have had a good response from the public on social media and look forward to welcoming the people of Lincoln to this yearly event once again, albeit a month later than usual.”
