Organisers of the 129th Lincolnshire Show have hailed this year’s two-day event as a great success with an estimated 60,000 people visiting.
Jayne Southall, director of the Lincolnshire Showground and the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, said: “It was a brilliant show, everything ran like clockwork, and we had two days of wonderful weather – which is great for everyone involved, and for the thousands of people who attended.
“This year’s show was attended by HRH The Countess of Wessex who visited the agricultural areas, our trade areas and met many people involved in the society. It was so wonderful to have her at this year’s show.”
The Lincolnshire Show is a county institution – and bigger, better and more diverse than ever. There were 600 shopping stands, more than 2500 animals, and thousands of people at the main ring.
“The main ring had big audiences on both days which is a great indicator of the show’s success,” said Jayne. “And of course we were helped along by the weather which was fantastic this year.”
