RAF Falcons set to parachute into the Lincolnshire Show 03 May

Taking place on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 June, the show is set under the theme of RAF 100 and will also include a Dakota flypast, a Spitfire flypast, a replica Red Arrow, mini tank driving for children and a special aviation themed treasure hunt trail.

The two-day event will also be recognising 100 years since the end of WW1 and the Lincolnshire Showground has donated 100 tickets to Tickets for Troops.

Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that the RAF Falcons will be making a special appearance at the Lincolnshire Show. Their displays are truly fantastic and we can’t wait to welcome the team to the Showground!

“As our theme is RAF 100 we wanted to ensure that local service men and women were given the chance to attend the show, with our compliments, so we have donated 100 adult tickets to Tickets for Troops.

Sophie Fallows partnership and operations executive at Tickets for Troops, said: “We’re so grateful for the generous donation of 100 adult tickets to the Lincolnshire Show.

“This year’s show theme is so important to our members and it sounds like an action packed show!”

Among the hundreds of exhibitors, exciting performances and attractions will be an array of RAF themed activities and stands as well as events and stalls that celebrate the best of rural Lincolnshire with a mixture of entertainment, food, shopping, music and agriculture.

Now in its 134th year the Lincolnshire Show offers a host of exciting animal displays, daring stunts and lively music in the main ring as well as a wide range of delicious food stalls, and live cookery demos.

Shoppers can pick up bargains and exclusive items from clothes, jewellery and shoes to cars, lawnmowers and hot tubs as well as take home beautiful floral displays from the flower show.

Lincolnshire Show will take place on 20 and 21 June and will host an eclectic mix of entertainment, food, shopping, music, horticulture and agriculture.

Advanced tickets are £20 for adults, £17 for 17 to 22-year-olds, children are £6 and under-fives go free. Family tickets, admitting two adults and up to three children are priced at £42. Car parking is free on both days.
