With everything from interactive gaming experiences to food and drink events on this June in Lincoln, 2018 is shaping up to be a great month to treat dad. Here are just some of the best ways to treat him this Father's Day:

Say cheers with craft gins and tasting sessions

Does your dad like a crafty tipple? There has never been a better time for artisan booze than the present, with some excellent Lincolnshire companies pitching in with tasty offerings. Bottomley Distillers are at the heart of the region's "spiritual" journey of discovery with their wickedly good Pin Gin. For places to buy craft gin, along with some superb summer cocktail ideas, see: http://bottomleydistillers.co.uk 

Or test his grey matter...

Lincoln's own answer to the panic room phenomenon, there are some enjoyably tricky challenges here. We like the regional twists thrown into the mix too, from a Lancaster bomber themed mystery, to a one hour mission to capture the Lincoln Imp! You'll need to book early for Father's Day. Gift vouchers are also an option. Full details here: http://www.tensionexitgames.co.uk/

Make a Knight of it

Could dad use some swordsmanship skills? Or perhaps he is a bit of a knave and could use some lessons in old English chivalry? If so, the Knight School for Dads at Lincoln Castle looks like terrific fun this Father's Day. All you have to do is book in advance. It's sure to be a great oppurtunity for some hilarious pictures, while younger knights can also offer constructive criticism if he isn't quite up to it!

Feathered encounters at Woolside

Woolside are one of the closest options to Lincoln, where dads can receive a personalised experience handling eagles, owls and other impressive birds of prey. Other family are welcome to come along and watch, and you're sure to get some spectacular pictures. See http://www.woodsidewildlife.com/experience-falconry.cfm
