This year’s Show takes place on Sunday 14th July. We are determined to bounce back this year, following the disappointment of 2012.

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 2013, we are hoping for more and we look set to beat all previous records with over 100+ bookings this year.
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 a main ring performance from Adrian the Clown!
The Tug-of-War competition takes place again this year as well as the hugely popular Companion Dog 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. Their display will take place at 3:15pm. 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 Skegness Silver Band and members of Kakushigei Taiko, a Japanese Drumming Band – not to be missed!
One of the highlights of the day however, will be a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster Bomber which will take place at approximately 4:20pm.
Please keep returning to remain up to date with the latest developments as the event approaches!
