The Spilsby Show is an annual event, held each year on the second Sunday of July. Once, second only in size to the Lincolnshire Show, the event may now be held on a smaller scale, but it remains one of the most popular events in the county’s calendar. The Spilsby Show is organised by a dedicated committee who work voluntarily throughout the year, planning the event and making sure it all goes smoothly, enabling our visitors to have a great day out with their family and friends.
The event is held in order to raise vital funds for local charities and other worthy organisations. In October 2019, at their most recent Presentation Night, the organisers distributed in excess of £7,000 to local charities and other good causes. Apart from a small amount of working capital, every pound received or spent on the day is given directly to organisations in Spilsby and the surrounding area, allowing them to continue their own good work.
Records show that the event began in 1880. The show was once a two day event however, from 1994 it became a one day event. It moved to the site it occupies today in July 2002 and has gone from strength to strength.
Our principle aim is to organise an event which is enjoyed by all visitors, providing something for the whole family to enjoy. If you would like to help us in this vision, please consider advertising with us in our event programme or attending on the day. Alternatively, you can have a banner on the showground, sponsor a marquee, an event, book a Trade Stand, Charity Stand or purchase space in our Craft Tent.
Without the tremendous support of the public and the generosity of many local and national businesses, individuals and all our helpers and volunteers, the Spilsby Show would not be the success that it is. Could you offer such support? Please help us to continue our work so we can carry on supporting all of those organisations who need our assistance.
We could not organise an event on this scale without a tremendous amount of help and support. We would like to extend our grateful thanks to everyone who helps make the Spilsby Show the success that it is. Without this help from the public, our sponsors, advertisers, exhibitors and all of the individuals who give their time so generously, the event would simply not be possible.
