New businesses across the county have the chance to win free trade space at this year’s Lincolnshire Show.

Grow with the Show is open to 18-30 year-olds in Lincolnshire who set up their own business in the last 18 months - or are looking to turn their talent into a viable business in the near future.

If you are a baker, potter, landscape gardener, or artist, the show wants to hear from you - but be quick as the deadline for applications is this Friday.

The Lincolnshire Show, set to take place at Lincolnshire Showground on June 24-25, attracts about 60,000 people over the two days, and is described as ‘the perfect platform for growing businesses’.

Jayne Southall, CEO of the Lincolnshire Showground and Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, said: “We want to hear from all fledgling businesses looking to kick-start their business.

“We are proud to be working in partnership with the University of Lincoln, a great partner for the competition.”

The winner will receive a trade space at the show or an area to perform their talent and two ‘highly-commended’ applicants will be invited to the show to see what it has to offer local businesses. Applicants will be judged by a panel of three judges.

Applications close on Friday with the winner and runners-up being announced on Friday, May 8.

Application forms can be downloaded from the show’s website and completed forms can be returned to the Lincolnshire Showground, Grange De Lings, Lincoln, LN2 2NA.
