Events: Your ultimate guide to the Lincolnshire Show 2019

Things to do in Lincolshire…

The month of June brings with it the return of one of the county’s biggest events.

It will soon be time for the Lincolnshire Show once again, celebrating some significant anniversaries in 2019.

Here we bring you a guide to help you plan a wonderful day out…

2019 special celebrations

This year’s show, held on June 19 and 20 at the Lincolnshire Showground, will feature special celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, the charity that organises the event.

Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “This year is a very special one for the Lincolnshire Showground and the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society. Not only does it mark 150 years of the society, but 60 years of the show being held at the showground, and the 10th birthday of the Epic Centre. 

“We will have lots of anniversary activities taking place and non-stop entertainment over both days – there is something for everyone, whatever your age.

The Lincolnshire Kitchen

For many, all the fantastic food at the Lincolnshire Show is one of the event’s main attractions. The Food Court is usually buzzing with visitors choosing tasty treats to take home or food to savour at the event.

County producers head along to share their delicious food and drink, while others from further afield complete the variety on offer.

The Lincolnshire Kitchen is where you’ll be able to enjoy live cookery demonstrations from local chefs and producers – a programme will be released soon.
