What else is on?
There will be 600 stalls at the show, with traders travelling from all over the world to sell their products.
Visitors can buy everything from clothing, jewellery, and handbags, to lawnmowers, hot tubs, and cars.
The food is definitely something to check out, with hot food stands selling sausage, bacon, and egg sandwiches, and a vast array of stalls selling delicious street food.
Visitors can also buy ingredients such as meat, cheeses, jams, chutney, and local ales.
The Floral Art Competition
This year, the show’s title is ‘It’s a Wonderful World’. People who take part will showcase their work, based on this theme, in a variety of different competitions.
This can be found in the horticultural area of the Lincolnshire Showground.
The Aviation Zone
This amazing edition of the show returns this year, allowing visitors of all ages to explore real-life cockpits and fuselages.
Experts from a variety of aviation heritage centres will also be there to help people of all ages discover the rich aviation history linked with the county.
How can I get there?
The A15 from the A46 Lincoln bypass to the A631 at Caenby Corner is closed to all but show traffic.
Organisers of the Lincolnshire Show have asked that people consider the route they will take to and from the show, and ask that visitors also consider what time they leave as the show hosts around 12,000 cars. This can unfortunately lead to inevitable queuing on the day.
Stagecoach will also be running a shuttle service between the showground and Lincoln City Bus Station and a regular bus service will be running every 15 minutes. It will leave the Lincoln City bus station at 8:30AM.
How can I buy tickets?
