Our annual Lambing Weekends draw thousands of visitors to Lackham Farm, near Lacock, for a day of family fun.
You’ll see our ewes with their newborn lambs in our brand new lambing shed — and you may even see one being born.
You can also:
• Take tractor-trailer rides
• Watch the Dairy Herd being milked – all the milk goes to a well-known chocolate brand
• Visit the robotic dairy farm
• Watch Birds of Prey displays
• See some of our small animals
• Enjoy a variety of food and beverage stalls
• Shop at the mini farmers’ market
• Enjoy 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.
Tickets are priced at £13.50 for adults (over 16), £9 for children (3 and over), or £40 for a car (maximum number of people will be the number legally allowed to travel in that car). Children aged 2 and under can enter for free.
We may be able to release more tickets closer to the event, but we 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.
Please 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 a family or group to enter with just one ticket. All members of the party must be in the same car to use this ticket.
The ticket can cover the maximum number of people legally allowed to travel in that car.
Can I buy a ticket on the gate?
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 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’re 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 we have 300 lambs this year.
