13 May 2022, Press Releases

LINCOLNSHIRE’S most beloved event – the Lincolnshire Show - will be making its grand return this June, taking on a royal purple theme to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Taking place for the first time since 2019, the event is set to welcome more than 60,000 visitors across two days with a jam-packed timetable for a royally good show. 

Returning for the first time since the outbreak of the pandemic and marking its 137th outing, a street party atmosphere will be created across the Lincolnshire Showground, with purple bunting strung across the Showground. Reams of old and new attractions along with family favourites have been secured to bring the Lincolnshire Show back with a bang. Fly pasts from classic aviation aircraft have been confirmed to mark the Jubilee, with a Hurricane and Spitfire swooping in on the Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

Jayne Southall, CEO at the Lincolnshire Showground, said: “We cannot wait to welcome visitors back to the Lincolnshire Show for the first time in three years. We have so much to offer and be proud of as a county, with these two days every June being the best celebration of all. It really is a one-of-a-kind event, so we could think of nothing better than to celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime event like the Platinum Jubilee. 

The showground will feel like one big street party and will allow visitors to watch breathtaking displays, learn more about agriculture and what it has to offer, and sample the best food to come out of Lincolnshire. The celebrations also extend to our hospitality menus, where visitors will be able to pre book and enjoy a traditional afternoon tea while overlooking the Main Ring to catch all the action on the Thursday. Make sure you book your table soon as spaces are going fast!

To spark imagination while bringing words to life, the Lincolnshire Show is also running a poetry competition with local school children. Marking the Queen’s reign, schools are being encouraged to enter the royal rhyme competition, with the winning poem to be selected by renowned Hollywood actor Colin McFarlane, who grew up in Lincoln. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Lincolnshire Show on 22nd and 23rd June 2022!
