Lincolnshire Show will be hosting ‘Show Comes to Town’ in Lincoln city centre this weekend.

Held in Cornhill on Saturday, May 25, the free to attend event will see animals, tractors, interactive activities and lots of local produce for shoppers to get a taste of what’s to come at Lincolnshire Show at the Lincolnshire Showground on June 19 and 20.

From 10am until 3pm, visitors to the Show Comes to Town event will be able to take part in activities with Lincoln City Football Club, meet animals from Rand Farm Park and sample food from Yellowbelly Sausage Co and Old Elephant Fudge as they enjoy the variety of entertainment on offer from local dance groups and choirs. Shoppers will also hear the latest news on the anticipated highlights of this year’s Lincolnshire Show, as well as purchase their advanced tickets at a discounted price.

Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “Show Comes to Town is essentially a mini Lincolnshire Show in the city centre and it’s a fantastic way to get a taste of the main event in June.

“With this year marking the 135th Lincolnshire Show and the 150th anniversary of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society – the charity behind the Show – we’ve got an amazing event lined up and a brilliant host of special anniversary celebrations across the two days.

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

Recently announced highlights for the 2019 Lincolnshire Show include the return of the RAF Falcons aerial display team.

Visitors will also be able to visit the Money Saving Expert as Martin Lewis brings ‘The Martin Lewis Money Show’ to the Showground. Over the years the financial guru has saved the nation millions of pounds with his financial advice and visitors will be able to put his knowledge to the test with their questions.

This year’s event will also feature 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 and Rescue band.

Advanced tickets for the Lincolnshire Show will be available to purchase at ‘Show Comes to Town’ and are £21 for adults, £17 for 17 to 22-year-olds, children’s tickets are £6 and under-fives go free.

Family tickets, admitting two adults and up to three children are priced at £44. Car parking is free on both days.
