A display by the RAF Falcons and ‘The Martin Lewis Money Show’ are among the highlights to look out for at the 135th Lincolnshire Show this summer.
This year’s event will be held on June 19 and 20 at the Lincolnshire Showground.
Advanced tickets are £21 for adults, £17 for people aged 17-22. Child tickets are priced at £6 with under fives able to go in for free. Family tickets admitting two adults and up to three children are priced at £44. Car parking is free on both days.
The RAF Falcons delivered a special appearance at last year’s show which was themed around RAF100. They will be back again as the Falcons parachute into this year’s show with their daring aerial displays.
‘The Martin Lewis Money Show’ will also have a stall at the show. Visitors will have the chance to meet money saving expert Martin Lewis who will answer questions from the public over the two days.
The event will also feature special celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, which is the charity that organises the popular county show. The 2019 spectacle also marks 60 years of the show being held at the Showground.
The two-day programme is packed full of other events including a Dakota flypast, acrobatic stunts from the UK’s top ranked freestyle motocross riders Broke FMX, the Shetland Pony Grand National and performances from the Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue band.
New features – The Lincolnshire Lifestyle Marquee within the Horticultural Zone is new for 2019. Visitors will be able to shop for a wide range of products from independent regional crafters. There will also be a few more exciting announcements about this year’s show, but they have yet to be revealed.
The Wye-Valley Axemen will bring traditional lumberjack techniques to life in the Countryside Ring. The popular East Midlands Police Dog Display team will also be returning.
There will be a wide range of exciting activities from animal displays and daring stunts in the Main Ring to food stalls and live cookery demos.
CEO of Lincolnshire Showground Jayne Southall said: “In 2018 the show marked 100 years since the end of WW1, but this year it is celebrating several anniversaries of its own with the 150th anniversary of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, 60 years of the Show being held at the Showground and the tenth birthday of the Epic Centre, so we’re thrilled to be unveiling such exciting highlights!
“We were absolutely thrilled to have the RAF Falcons as part of last year’s Show to celebrate 100 years of the RAF. The reception from attendees of the show to their parachute displays was fantastic, so we’re over the moon to have them back for another year as part of our celebrations.
“We’re very much looking forward to welcoming Martin Lewis to the Showground to help our visitors with his revered money saving expertise over the two days – it’s certainly something not to be missed.”
