Popular event that says spring is on the way!

Bishop Burton College is gearing up for one its biggest public events of the year – Lambing Sunday – which takes place on Sunday March 11.

Lambing Sunday, the college’s annual springtime spectacle, gives the public the opportunity to pet new-born lambs and see the birth of new lambs up close. In addition, the college will also be hosting a number of other activities across its vast campus – from showjumping and horse petting, to farm machinery displays, pig unit tours and animal petting in the college’s animal management unit, there’s something to entertain all the family.

Lambing Sunday is considered to be one of East Yorkshire’s major tourism events and has been short-listed for an award in this year’s Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards (the REYTAs), organised by Visit Hull and East Yorkshire.

Early bird tickets are currently on sale, which offers a saving on the admission prices available on the day. Separately, you can purchase tickets for half-hour animal feeding experiences – a chance to get up close and personal with one of the college’s famous meerkats, red ruffed lemurs, skunks and, new for 2018, raccoon dogs and rhea!

Lambing Sunday takes place from 11am to 3pm. Meals and afternoon teas will also be available. Parking on site is limited but a free park and ride service will be available from Beverley, running from the School Lane Car Park near to Beverley Fire Station. Buses will depart to/from Bishop Burton College approximately every 15 minutes, with the first bus leaving Beverley at 10:45.
