There is ground breaking news at the Lincolnshire Events Centre. Construction has begun on the latest addition to the showground’s buildings. The Tennyson Pavilion replaces the Sponsors Pavilion that was demolished in 2008 to make way for the EPIC Centre. The new Pavilion will be completed in time for the Lincolnshire Show on June 22nd & 23rd.
The previous Sponsors Pavilion was donated to the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society by A W Lockwood, on completion of his year of office as President of the Society. The new Tennyson Pavilion will replace this, enabling sponsors and corporate hospitality guests at the Show to be the first to benefit from this brand new facility.
John Lockwood, Chairman of the Agricultural Society, said “I am delighted to be supporting the Tennyson Pavilion; the development will be a great addition to the Events Centre and the Show itself.” He added “It’s perfect for hospitality at the Show, being central to all that goes on at Show and a great place to experience the Main Ring entertainment.”
Local firm, John Roberts Architects, have designed the single story Tennyson Pavilion, which will be situated on the west side of the Main Ring, providing an ideal venue all year for exclusive meetings and receptions. The Tennyson Pavilion, named in honour of Lincolnshire’s world famous poet, is entirely in keeping with the Event Centre’s ethos, the building incorporates many environmental features and is designed to be highly insulated and energy efficient.
Mark Farmer, Chief Executive at the Lincolnshire Events Centre said “The new pavilion will not only provide a new intimate facility for events throughout the year but it also reinforces our commitment to developing this prestigious venue to the benefit of the County’s economy.”
