There’s less than one week to go until the annual Lincolnshire Show welcomes more than 60,000 visitors to a display of top county businesses, produce, livestock and entertainment.
The two-day event, which is in its 131st year, kicks off on Wednesday, June 24 at the Lincolnshire Showground, and thrilling displays include the UK’s premier military parachute display team and a quad bike stunt man.
Amelia Chambers, marketing manager at the Lincolnshire Showground, said: “There is so much to see and do at this year’s show. We have a large variety of attractions and activities which truly highlight the best that Lincolnshire has to offer. We are also reminding visitors to keep their eyes up for a surprise aerial display.
“With only two weeks to go myself and the rest of the showground team are getting increasingly excited to welcome the thousands of people who come and enjoy the show every year.”
