Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “We will have lots of anniversary activities taking place and non-stop entertainment over both days – there is something for everyone, whatever your age.

“We’re always looking to develop the Lincolnshire Show by adding new features and performers, but we also try to keep the traditions of a county show and maintain its roots in agriculture.
