It's Showtime!

From wartime nostalgia to a life-sized talking book, there’s something for everyone at the council’s Lincolnshire Show area

Whether you’re looking for facts or fun - or the perfect mixture of both - we’ll have the lot at our stand at the 130th Show!

As usual, you’ll find us at 10th Avenue, Row B, where we’ve lined up displays and attractions for visitors of all ages.

Events manager Mark Stoneham said: “The Lincolnshire Show is a wonderful day for the whole family, and we’re delighted to play our part in making it such a success.

“This year, we’ve got displays and information highlighting just some of the things residents and community groups do to make the county such a great place.

“As 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the First World War and 70 years since the D-Day landings in the Second, we’re also exploring Lincolnshire’s involvement in both conflicts.”

For residents wanting to find out more about the many services the council provides, there could hardly be a better opportunity, with knowledgeable staff available to answer your questions.

You can even arrange to meet your elected councillor over a hot drink and discuss any local concerns you may have.

Our highlights

Top attractions of our wartime theme include:

  • A two-seater simulator of a Second World War aircraft cockpit, perfect for children wanting to let their imaginations soar!
  • 1940s nostalgia with military and civilian costumes from a bygone era, as well as heart-rending songs by Heather McHale.
  • Children can dress up as wartime evacuees, complete with suitcases and name tags, leaving their homes in the cities to escape the bombing.
  • Small models for the visually impaired of a Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane, so you can feel your way back into the past.

Bringing you back up to date with the 21st century, we highlight:

  • The vital work of Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue, including details of recruitment.
  • Ongoing efforts to help you stay safe on the county’s roads, courtesy of the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership.
  • How to “get high” in safety - on our climbing wall!
  • The joy of reading, with a life-sized talking book for youngsters called Flick!
