Hundreds of new, local exhibitors will be attending the Lincolnshire Show on June 21 and 22.

For the 133rd year the show at the Lincolnshire Showground will celebrate a mixture of entertainment, food, shopping, music and farm life, with around 600 exhibitors in attendance.

Last year around 60,000 people visited the two day event.

Ferry Ales Brewery, a craft ale brewery based in Fiskerton, Lincolnshire, is hosting a stand at the show for the first time.

John Cussons, co-owner of Ferry Ales Brewery, said: “As a local business, it is great to be involved in an event of this size and it gives us a chance to get out, meet customers and get immediate feedback from our products.”

Recently announced for 2017 is the Lincolnshire Show’s first pop-up restaurant. Award winning chef, Steven Bennett, and his team will be bringing his Grimsby restaurant, The Comfy Duck to the show.

Broke FMX, the UK’s top ranked freestyle motocross riders will be returning to the show this year.

Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground said: “We’re always looking to develop the Lincolnshire Show whilst keeping the charm of a traditional agricultural, county show, and we’re delighted to be introducing even more new features to this year’s event.”

Another new attraction is the machinery parade named the Man and Machines in Motion. Held in the Main Ring, the display will demonstrate how farmers use machinery.
