TICKETS for this year’s Lincolnshire Show are already flying out…two months ahead of the event.

Showgoers are not usually able to buy tickets until April, but organisers opened this year’s online bookings at the end of January, and are already reporting good interest.

The show, organised by the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, aims to boost awareness of countryside matters, and the vital role that agriculture plays in the local economy.

Each year it attracts about 60,000 visitors, as well as some 600 exhibitors, and will this year take place on Wednesday-Thursday June 20-21.

Director Jayne Southall said: “Plans are well advanced and it’s great to see the interest on these early ticket sales. Most importantly at this stage, we are seeing excellent support from both exhibitors and sponsors.

“It’s great to see local businesses supporting their local community by supporting the show. Many come every year, and that’s because it’s also a valuable route to reach their customers.”

Ticket prices have been held at 2011 rates which are: Adult £20 (£18 in advance), young person – age 17-22 – £15 (available in advance only), child – age 5-16 – £6 (£5.50 in advance), family – 2 adults and 3 children – £45 (£40 in advance).
