The 2014 Lincolnshire Show is set to be one of the grandest in history, as organisers celebrate its 130th year.
Visitors to the annual show, which takes place at the Lincolnshire Showground on June 18 and 19, will now be able to use an e-ticketing system for the first time.
Tickets can be bought online for the event, showcasing hundreds of attractions, thousands of award-winning livestock and exciting displays.
Jayne Southall, Director of the Lincolnshire Showground and Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, said: “The Lincolnshire Show is undoubtedly a county institution and we are immensely proud that this is our 130th year and the show is bigger, better and more diverse than ever.
“2014 is going to be a phenomenal show as we have such a huge range of attractions and activities for the whole family.
“No matter what age, the show offers a jam-packed day out for everyone to see, experience, taste the best of Lincolnshire – be it from entertainers, farmers, producers or retailers.
“Now we have introduced our paper-free, quick and easy e-ticking system, I expect we will welcome even more guests this year.”
