This is the 11th National Hamfest event run at this popular venue and every year the hall is packed with everything you need to set up and maintain an Amateur Radio Station. Whether your interest is: CW, SSB, Data modes, QRP or QRO, you will find it here.  If you’re interested in Ham Radio this is a must visit experience.

National Hamfest (Lincoln) Ltd is a  not for profit company that has been set up to manage the National Hamfest, and to co-ordinate the volunteer staffing provided by members of  Lincolnshire Radio Clubs. Any surplus from the event is shared between the Lincolnshire Radio Clubs whose members have worked hard to make the National Hamfest the largest amateur radio rally in the UK.

Latest Update – 26 March

Following positive discussions today with the showground management, we are very pleased to announce the availability of camping/ caravanning at the National Hamfest 2019. All camping for National Hamfest 2019 will be managed by the NH team.

Please note:     It is no longer possible to book any camping directly with the showground

Visitor camping/ caravanning facilities will be available from 1200 noon on Thursday 26th September until 1800 on Saturday 28th. High quality shower and toilet facilities are provided. No facilities will be available on Wednesday or Saturday night. All visitor pitches must be vacated by 1800 on Saturday.  

We regret that no other on-site camping facilities are available other than through the hamfest shop. Details of nearby commercial campsites are available on the page “caravanning & camping”
