Special Father’s Day vintage tractor display in the Bailgate

Vintage tractor displays will head to the Bailgate for a special Father’s Day celebration this weekend.

The Lincolnshire Showground team will be bringing ‘Tractors into Town’ for a free to attend event in Castle Hill on Sunday, June 16 from 10am to 4pm.

It will also mark the last day people are able to purchase advanced tickets for the 2019 Lincolnshire Show before the standard ticket prices are introduced.

Advanced tickets for the 2019 Lincolnshire Show will be available to purchase at Sunday’s tractor event – £21 for adults, £17 for 17 to 22-year-olds, £6 for children (children under five go free) and £44 for family tickets (two adults and up to three children).

CEO of the Lincolnshire Showground Jayne Southall said: “The theme of this year’s Lincolnshire Show is ‘Making Memories’, and we’re very much looking forward to bringing ‘Tractors into Town’ for the first time this year as part of that.

“One of the main aims of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society – the charity behind the Showground – is to educate people on the importance of agriculture, farming and where our food comes from. ‘

“Tractors into Town’ will allow people young and old to explore the city centre and learn more about tractors and farming machinery for free – it’s bound to make it a Father’s Day to remember!”

The 2019 Lincolnshire Show will take place at the Lincolnshire Showground on June 19 and 20. 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.

A vintage fire engine used in filming for Tim Burton’s of Dumbo will be on display in the Steam area courtesy of Rand Park Farm, and Guy Martin’s WW2 tank will be returning to the show once again.
