Dancing Diggers to perform heart stopping stunts at 132nd Lincs Show 07 Mar

This is the first time in over ten years that the high-octane act has performed at the Show and spectators will be stunned to see the team of mechanical diggers, weighing more than 80 tonnes, dance spectacular routines to music favourites including Phantom of the Opera and The Wedding March.

Kindly sponsored by ABBA Plant Hire and T.C Harrison JCB, the routine will see the JCB diggers weave and circle past each other with inches to spare and with split second precision, and audiences will be amazed as the buckets and shovels become acrobatic arms, lifting the machines into the air.

Advanced tickets will soon be on sale online for the much-loved Show which takes place on the 22 and 23 June this year. CEO Jayne Southall said the Showground is eagerly preparing for the biggest Show to date.

She said “The Show always delivers two days of non-stop entertainment and we are delighted to announce that JCB Dancing Diggers will be one of our headline acts this year. We aim to offer the very best in entertainment and this is an act I really can’t wait to see!

“We’re proud to celebrate the best of Lincolnshire and its great heritage with everything from cooking demonstrations to live entertainment, livestock and equine shows and plenty of shopping - there is always something to suit all ages and tastes.

“We had record-breaking visitors across the two days last year which resulted in extra car parking being required, and we are preparing for the same again this year!”

The Show is expecting to welcome more than 600 traders and exhibitors all showcasing their latest products from handbags to hot tubs, mowers to muck spreaders and combines to candles – plus much more.

Savage Skills will be returning this year to demonstrate freestyle bike tricks and visitors to the Countryside Ring will be able to enjoy professional chainsaw sculptures crafted in a matter of minutes.

The Main Ring will also see the return of popular freestyle motocross riders Broke FMX, alongside a number of traditional displays, where audiences will be able to watch the talented show jumpers and the parade of the hounds.

The Lincolnshire Kitchen is launching this year and will see popular chefs and producers demonstrating how to create an exciting variety of dishes using their favourite local produce.

Jayne added: “The Show is a great testament to the fantastic trade and produce that Lincolnshire has to offer as well as further afield and we love that the Showground is able to showcase this.

“Trade bookings are already flooding in from businesses who visit us every year and first timers, who see the value of attending the show commercially as it gives a unique opportunity to reach such large audiences. If you’d like to exhibit with us, our advice is to get in touch with our trade team as soon as you can.”

Visitors are also encouraged to take advantage of fantastic membership and hospitality opportunities at the Showground. Becoming a member of the Agricultural Society will provide entrance to the Show on both days plus VIP access to the member’s area and special discounts throughout the year at other Showground events.

Advanced tickets will be £19 for adults, children are £6 and under-fives go free. Car parking is free on both days.
