What to do at the Lincolnshire Show

The 130th Lincolnshire Show kicks off on Wednesday, June 18, with 200 acres worth of agricultural highlights, entertainment for all the family, shopping and many other memorable attractions.

The headlining attractions for the 2014 show include the RAF Falcons parachute display team, motocross bike athletics group Broke FMX and gymnastics on horseback – demonstrated by Jive Pony.

In addition, visitors can enjoy local performances from community groups, including the Kesteven Morris Dancers, choirs and cheerleaders, the highly anticipated food court and prized animal displays.
