This year’s Show takes place on Sunday 13th July. We are determined to make this year’s event the biggest yet as we will be celebrating our 40th birthday!
The Show was revived in July 1974 after a break of several years. Since that revival, we have moved home, seen changes in the format but this year, despite the outbreak of foot and mouth disease and extremely wet weather we are still here – bigger and better than ever!
Over the course of the next few weeks, details of various new attractions will appear here so please keep returning to keep up to date with all of the latest developments.
We will again have both Craft and Model Marquees, exhibiting a huge range of goods and local crafts. The Model Marquee will feature displays of bygones, die-cast vehicles and various other exhibits. Our Indoor Trade Marquee will welcome various local businesses, offering their services as well as playing host to exhibits by local history groups.
We are also delighted to be holding a Shire Horse Show again this year. This will commence at 10:30am.
Our annual 6 mile Road Race will start at 11:00am. We have already seen a huge number of people enter prior to the event although visitors can also enter on the day. The route will again prove to be a challenging course for all concerned.
We’re also delighted to welcome a huge range of Vintage Exhibits to the Show again this year. A huge number of bookings have been received from owners of vintage cars, motor cycles, tractors and oil engines. This will surely prove to be a hugely popular display once again. Don’t forget that a number of the vehicles in this display will take to the main ring later in the afternoon as a part of the Grand Parade.
Demand for Trade Stand space has already surpassed that seen in previous years and therefore, we are on course for a record number of Trade Stands and Charity Stalls. At the most recent Show, we welcomed over 100 stalls. In 2014, we are hoping for more and we look set to beat all previous records.
The children will also have plenty to keep them entertained this year, with giant inflatable slides, hook a duck and swingboat stalls as well as various other colourful and exciting attractions including, for the very first time, a Punch and Judy Show!
The Dog Show judging will commence at 10:30am.
We are also welcoming members of the Royal British Legion to the Show this year, as well as members from Spilsby Bowls Club and also a display by the Spilsby Branch of the Storm UK Martial Arts Training School. Archery fans will be able to try their luck at ‘hitting the apple’ with help from members of Friskney Bowmen.
Musical entertainment will be provided by members of Kakushigei Taiko, a Japanese Drumming Band – not to be missed and also members of Spilsby Harlequins!
One of the highlights of the day however, will be a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire, which will take place at some point during the afternoon.
Please keep returning to remain up to date with the latest developments as the event approaches!
