Lincolnshire Show 2018 tickets ‘take off’ with RAF100 theme

Aviation-themed show.

Tickets are officially on sale for the 2018 Lincolnshire Show, and this year they’re expected to ‘fly’ off the shelves.

This year, the annual two day event celebrating county roots and agriculture will be themed alongside the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

Hundreds of exhibitors, performers and attractions will fill the Lincolnshire Showground on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21.

An array of RAF activities and stands will be included this year, including Dakota and Spitfire flypasts, a replica Red Arrow, mini tank driving for children and a special aviation themed treasure hunt trail.

More highlights are still to be announced in the coming weeks, with a guaranteed mix of entertainment, food, shopping, music and agriculture.

There will be a number of exciting animal displays, daring stunts and lively music in the main ring, as well as offering visitors the chance to explore cockpits, meet local aviation heritage centres and try Ferry Ales Brewery’s special Bastian Ale in the dedicated Aviation Zone.

Visitors will be able to satisfy their shopping habit by visiting more than 600 trade stands offering everything from clothes, jewellery and shoes to cars, lawnmowers and hot tubs as well as take home beautiful floral displays from the flower show.

For foodies, Lincolnshire producers will showcase the very best of their wares, with national and international specialities on offer as well as live cookery demonstrations from top local chefs and producers in The Lincolnshire Kitchen.

Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “Aviation forms an important part of our great heritage, Lincolnshire is the home of the Red Arrows and at one stage was one of the leading aircraft production areas in the world.

“Our chosen charities for 2018 are the Jon Egging Trust and the RAF Charitable Trust too, so we’re really excited about this year’s theme and have even more acts and exhibition announcements to come – so watch this space!”

Advanced tickets are £20 for adults, £17 for 17 to 22-year-olds, children are £6 and under-fives go free. Family tickets, admitting two adults and up to three children are priced at £42. Car parking is free on both days.
