As I’m sat writing this post, it’s grey, rainy and pretty miserable outside. These photos from the Lincolnshire Show 2017 take me back to a hot, much sunnier day – just a week ago!
The Lincolnshire Show is always a highlight in the county calendar, mainly because there is SO MUCH TO SEE! All kinds of animals, livestock, shopping, music, horticulture and food fill the whole of the Lincolnshire Showground for two days. You definitely need a day to fully explore all of what’s on offer.
I started attending back in 2011 for work where I spent most of my days stood on a trade stall, and then in 2014 I had the pleasure of visiting for well, pleasure, for the first time. After missing last year, I was excited to get back to see what the 2017 Show would bring.
Of course, the Main Ring is a must. This is the heart of the Lincolnshire Show, where acts representing each and every section of the event perform to the thousands upon thousands of visitors.
It’s safe to say the crowd let out a few gasps of shock and big rounds of applause when Broke FMX, a freestyle motorcross stunt display team, took to the Ring.
My personal highlight – and honestly, the star attraction of the Show – is the Parade of Hounds. Partly because there’s always one or two cheeky doggies that get a bit excited and have a happy little wonder around. Mainly because you get to go into the Ring to meet them all! It’s become a bit of a Lincolnshire Show tradition and I love it.
I feel like every time I visit I discover a new part of the Show. This year I definitely spent more time with the animals and by the Countryside Ring.
This was a new discovery for me…
… as was the Dog & Duck Show. Super cute.
Then, there was the Lincolnshire Beekeepers’ Association Marquee. Sadly, I missed the live bee beard display (ouch!) but I did get to see the Lincoln Beekeeper Baron. Everything about this tent, from the fresh honey and the crafts to the flags, just screamed Lincolnshire.
Finally, I took a stroll to the Horticulture Area, which is just beautiful. If you need a place to have a minute and unwind, this is it.
Just look at the artwork!
If you get the chance to visit, you must get to the Food Court for a Lincolnshire Red Burger or a Lincolnshire Sausage bun. The food is one of the best parts of the whole event! Then, take a look and see who’s cooking in the Lincolnshire Kitchen.
Already, the dates are set for the Lincolnshire Show 2018 – get the 20th and 21st June in your diary now! In the meantime, look out for more updates from the Lincolnshire Show Team over on their website. Have a read of my posts from 2014 and 2015 too.
Thanks for reading!
