Grow with the Show

Grow with the Show

Do you want the chance to grow your new business?

Are you a talented young person aged 18 - 35? Have you started a business within the last three years, and are you based in Lincolnshire?

Each year, we team up with the University of Lincoln to give a start-up business in Lincolnshire a chance to Grow with the Show. Any kind of talent is welcome whether you're a gardener, baker, potter or entertainer - the sky is the limit! 

The winner receives a £250 cash prize, business mentoring from Sparkhouse, the design of your promotional banners from Root Studio and up to £300 towards the print by Ruddocks. Plus, you'll receive a prime exhibitor space at the Lincolnshire Show, which with over 60,000 visitors each year is an incredible platform to show off your talents! We'll be on hand to support the vision for your stand and will also provide promotion for you and your business via our website, social media platforms and PR activity before and during the Show. 

The runner up will receive £100 plus two Society guest badges giving admission to the Lincolnshire Show and access to our exclusive ringside Members' area. 

2019's Grow with the Show winner was Designed for Dogs, who specialise in making luxury handmade dog beds and blankets using high quality materials. Our runners-up was Sophie Hayward Photography who received £100 and two society guest badges providing free admission to the Lincolnshire Show over the two days and access to the exclusive Members’ area.
