From a Red Arrows fly past to chainsaw sculptures, from ‘ferreting’ to a Royal visit, this year’s Lincolnshire Show (June 19-20) promises to be one of the best ever!

Organisers say they are expecting to receive thousands more visitors to the Lincolnshire Show – with footfall boosted by guest of honour Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex.

The show is one of the largest and most prestigious county shows in the UK and attracts people from all over the Midlands and the rest of the country. The Countess will be there on the second day of the show on June 20.

Now in its 129th year, the Lincolnshire Show is a great family day out with lots going on to attract youngsters.

The Lincolnshire Show is organised by the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society. Agriculture remains at the heart of the show with livestock and equine competitions, machinery displays and the chance to find out more about local food and drink produce.

There will be cooking demonstrations from Lincolnshire chefs Rachel Green and Dominic Franks, local produce in the food court, vintage vehicle displays, floral decoration and flower shows, a sporting showcase, main ring entertainment, craft tents, plenty of fantastic retail opportunities – and lots of live music.

On the first day of the show, highlights include Simon Whitehead, a professional ferreter who will wow the crowds with his ferrets – and their skills.

There will be the Cuerden Falconry display – with more than a dozen of the world’s most amazing birds of prey. On both days, there will be Jive Pony – the UK’s talented female equestrian display team – with their skipping horses and hula hooping horseback ballerinas.

Sponsors Duckworth are offering guests the chance to take part in the Land Rover experience where visitors will be scaling steep inclines and daring slide slopes as they are driven by qualified off-road Land Rover instructors.

Crowds will also see Chainsaw Sculpture – seeing how a block of timber can be transformed into an amazing sculpture. Rugby legend Mike Catt will be showing youngsters his silky skills on Wednesday – and young people can try and out-kick him. Katy Cropper the first winner of TV’s One Man and His Dog will be showing off her skills in the main ring on both days of the show.

On Thursday, as well as the visit by Sophie, The Countess of Wessex, there will be a stunning display from the fantastic Red Arrows and a fly past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Dakota.
