Heckington Show is a quintessentially English event
This year, more than ever, we need a boost to help us feel-good, to re-energise and re-connect and this year, more than ever, Heckington Show is the place to make it happen.
By running the small scale event last year, the team kept England’s favourite village show in the calendar and are ready once again to offer a thrilling two-day programme on the last weekend in July.
For 2022 Heckington has pulled out the stops to bring the very best headline entertainment – look out for jousting, motorcycle displays, national standard show jumping and a Take That tribute band taking the stage for the Grand Firework Concert.
As always, these star attractions come beautifully wrapped within this amazing English country show.
Take in the sights and sounds or just soak up the village show atmosphere. Get a close look at shire horses, sheep and cattle in the livestock areas and be amazed by the creativity of both man, woman and nature in the Horticulture marquee.
Take a wander to buy some gifts from the myriad of stalls, enjoy music, relive history through Lincolnshire’s heritage, try some exhilarating fairground rides and engage with demonstrations of traditional crafts from pottery and weaving to vintage farm machinery. Recharge at one of the fabulous food stalls, bringing you the best of Lincolnshire produce (think sausage baps for example) or visit the Food Hall to take home tasty memories of Heckington Show.
The show also comes with a unique sporting pedigree and brings a big programme of cycle racing and athletics on Saturday, complimented by the show jumping on Sunday.
It’s easier than ever to buy tickets on-line – just go to www.heckingtonshow.org.uk and give your family a day, or perhaps a whole weekend to look forward to.
Spend time on the show’s website and you will also see there are many ways to take part with children’s races in the main ring, the famous ten-mile road race and an array of craft activities for all ages.
Heckington Show takes place at Hall Grounds on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31.
