This weekend sees the return of the popular Spilsby Show.

The annual event, which can be traced back to the 1880s, will take place on Spilsby Recreation Ground, in Ancaster Avenue, on Sunday, with proceeds going to local charities and good causes.

Gates will open at 10am, with a fee of £3 for adults and £2 for children. A free park-and-ride service will be in operation from King Edward VI Academy and Vale Road Industrial Estate.

As always, there will be a wide range of activities for visitors to enjoy, including a display of vintage vehicles, tractors and oil engines, a model and craft marquee, and more than 100 trade and charity stands.

The heavy horse show will makes its return, along with the companion dog show and six-mile road race.

The main ring will play host to the Sarber Dog Agility Display, a march by members of the Royal British Legion, the grand parade – when many vintage exhibits take to the main arena – and more.

There will also be live music courtesy of the Skegness Silver Band and, for the first time, Cover Girls, who will perform a medley of musical classics.

And in the year the nation celebrates the 90th birthday of the Queen, younger visitors will have the opportunity to be crowned the king and queen of the Spilsby Show.
