Inflatable Colour Dash

Wear your biggest smile and raise money for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, creating colourful memories and getting messy at the Lincolnshire Showground.

The Colour Dash is back and inflating to new heights with an exciting twist! The paint stations you know and love will be joining forces with a new inflatable obstacle for 2018, it is sure to be the biggest and brightest colour dash yet.

This untimed fun run will see participants splattered from head to toe in a vibrant coloured powder with inflatable obstacles at each kilometre. Don’t worry if you aren’t an avid runner, you can walk, hop, skip or dance the 5k route and the inflatables are optional.

With only three rules, the idea is easy to follow:

  1. Start wearing white (t-shirt not provided);
  2. Finish painted all colours of the rainbow;
  3. Raise money for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.

Help us make this year’s event the biggest, brightest and best yet!

The Colour Dash is the perfect way to celebrate the lives of the people St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice have cared for whilst raising money for the care of future generations. Your support ensures that St Barnabas' patients and their families can make the most of every single second they share, regardless of how much time remains.

Guy Martin's WW1 Tank Replica

For one weekend only Guy Martin's WWI tank replica will be exhibited at the Museum. The tank was built with the expertise of the Norfolk Tank Museum, to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of Cambrai and also reflects Lincoln’s history of the birthplace of the tank from WW1, and where so many of those tanks were built. Public engagement manager Jon Hogan says: “As the birthplace of the tank and the city where so many WWI tanks were built, Lincoln is the ideal place to showcase this fantastic piece of engineering. “The tank will be on display for visitors to admire and photograph and there will also be a chance to talk to some of the volunteers who helped build it. In addition, visitors can see an original WWI tank in the Museum's collection.' The tank display is courtesy of Norfolk Tank Museum and NorthOne TV.

Admission charges do apply: Adult: £2.50 Concession: £1.00 Child £1.00 Family Ticket £5.00 (two adults and up to three children).
