Season at the Showground 29 Aug

All About Gardening brought out our inner ‘Titchmarsh’, while the One Event united people’s faith from around the UK. Lincolnshire Steam and Vintage celebrated the old and new and Arthur Swallow Antiques and Home Show gave us inspiration for our homes from decades gone by. But we can’t forget our own Lincolnshire Show, the jewel in our agricultural crown where 60,000 visitors enjoyed everything great and good about Lincolnshire.

But as the darker nights and cooler weather fast approach us our eco friendly Epic Centre promises a winter full of warm weekend entertainment: Comedy Curry Night (3rd October), Crew Clothing Sale (17th – 20th Oct), the glorious Lincolnshire Food and Gift Fair (29th – 30th November) and our shared Christmas Party nights (13th & 19th Dec).

Lincolnshire Food and Gift is only a couple of months away, so it’s busy busy in the #LincsShowgirl office designing flyers, maps and adverts and booking in the 200 stands that fill the festive halls. Each year we make it bigger and better, with 2014 being no exception. In fact, we’ve even added extra space to fit more stands in.
They’ll be cookery demonstrations from local chefs, cooks, bakers, wine experts and cocktail makers. Stands to stock up on Christmas essentials and those all-important gifts so you can fill your boots and your stockings. Our craft workshops will keep children and adults amused all day. Already booked are local businesses selling cheeses, jams, beers, cakes, breads, meats and Christmas gifts. Hot Rocks Pizza were first in line for a cooking stand, with Chapmans Fishcakes, Duck Fat Roasties and Hog Roasts following suit.

So, as your toes reach out of bed and it feels like venturing into the arctic remember the Showground is brimming with warmth, festive cheer, tasty food, gifts and entertainment.
