Louth Pie Day

Ticket Refunds
We really hope you hold onto your ticket(s) until next Louth Pie Day, but if you wish to get your ticket(s) refunded simply take them to the establishment that sold them to you. Each establishment has retained all their ticket sale takings, which are then pooled and fairly shared with all the establishments after Louth Pie Day.

Lincolnshire Pie Championship

Lincolnshire Pie Championship – POSTPONED

With regret we must postpone the Lincolnshire Pie Championship on 15th April for obvious reasons, not least because the wonderful St James’ Church, Louth is now closed for all public services.

An Autumn reschedule might be possible and we will start looking at options as soon as the country gets over this debilitating health and economic crisis.


* Whether professional or amateur, ENTER YOUR PIE (OR PIES) into the Lincolnshire Pie Championship.
* VISIT St James’ Church on Louth Pie Day, see and savour pies in the championship and join in food & cooking talks by experts from our wonderful judging panel.
* VOLUNTEER and help put on a stunning event (can you help the public on our Fis Shambles on our stall, sew bunting or put up posters, or suggest something!)

Enter your favourite pie in the open-to-all Lincolnshire Pie Championship, held on the same day as Louth Pie Day and located in the beautiful St James Church of Louth, or visit to see and savour pies in the championship and meet the food experts from our wonderful judging panel.


The 2020 Lincolnshire Pie Championship is exceptionally fortunate to be graced with a wonderful team of well-known, food expert judges.
