Our lambing weekends are back this spring!

Enjoy a family fun day out at Lackham farm. See lambs being born, take a tractor trailer ride and much more!

Lack­ham Lamb­ing Week­ends 2023 are now sold out.

Our annu­al Lamb­ing Week­ends draw thou­sands of vis­i­tors to Lack­ham Farm near Lacock for a day of fam­i­ly fun.

Take a trac­tor-trail­er ride up to the farm, where you’ll see our ewes with their new­born lambs — you may even see one being born! There is some­thing for every­one at Lambing:

  • Watch the Dairy Herd being milked – all the milk goes to a well known choco­late brand
  • Vis­it the new robot­ic dairy farm – milk­ing 247!
  • See some of our small animals
  • Vari­ety of food and bev­er­age stalls
  • Mini farm­ers’ mar­ket includ­ing Lack­ham meat – no food miles!
  • Trac­tor and trail­er rides
  • A range of children’s activities

Tick­ets must be pur­chased through Eventbrite here. Pre book­ing is essen­tial – there are no tick­ets to be pur­chased at the gate.

We may be able to release more tick­ets clos­er to the event, but can­not guar­an­tee this as it depends on the weath­er fore­cast. We there­fore rec­om­mend book­ing your tick­ets as soon as you can. If you do miss out on the first set of tick­ets, keep an eye on our social media accounts, where we will announce any addi­tion­al tick­et availability.

Note — only Guide Dogs and Trained Assis­tance Dogs are allowed on site. 

Some sheep can har­bour organ­isms which could affect a preg­nan­cy and there­fore we strong­ly rec­om­mend against vis­it­ing if you are pregnant.


How does the fam­i­ly (up to 6) tick­et work?

The idea of this tick­et is to allow fam­i­lies with mul­ti­ple chil­dren to enter under one fam­i­ly ticket. 

Fam­i­lies must all be in the same car for this tick­et. If you enter in two cars, you will need two tickets. 

Can I buy a tick­et on the gate?

No. You must pre-pur­chase tick­ets before enter­ing the site.

Can I trans­fer to a dif­fer­ent date after book­ing my tickets?

You can if there is still space avail­able on your new dates, but there is a small fee incurred. The fee varies as it is based on your tick­et pur­chas­es. Please com­plete a date change request via EventBrite.

Can I get a refund if I can’t attend?

We will accept refund requests up to the Thurs­day before each event. This will allow us to release your tick­ets for resale, but there is a small fee incurred. Requests for refunds must be made through Eventbrite.

Why are preg­nant peo­ple not able to visit?

Some sheep can har­bour organ­isms which could affect a preg­nan­cy and there­fore we strong­ly rec­om­mend against vis­it­ing if you are pregnant. 

Can I bring my dog?

Due to it being a work­ing farm, we don’t allow dogs on site apart from Guide Dogs or trained Assis­tance Dogs. They must wear the cor­rect cloth­ing’ at all times dur­ing their visit. 

Is park­ing easy?

You will be direct­ed to a park­ing area by event staff. This may be in a field. 

We have a des­ig­nat­ed area for dis­abled park­ing. Please bring your blue badge with you, and dis­play at all times whilst on site.

Will there be food avail­able to purchase?

Yes, there will be food out­lets to pur­chase a range of hot and cold food, and drinks from. There will also be space avail­able for you to use as a pic­nic area if you bring your own food.

Not all of the ven­dors will be able to accept card pay­ments, so please make sure to bring some cash with you as well.

How many lambs are you expecting?

We have around 700 sheep and are expect­ing around 1300 lambs. We also have anoth­er 200 sheep who have had their lambs already, so already have 300 lambs this year.
