Brigg Tourist Information Centre - housed in the Buttercross - will be again be selling tickets for the Lincolnshire Show.
Advanced tickets are now on sale for the popular two-day event, to be held on Wednesday and Thursday, June 21st and 22nd, 2017 to celebrate the best of rural Lincolnshire with a mixture of entertainment, food, shopping, music and farm life.
The location, as ever, is the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society's Showground to the south of Lincoln, off the A15.
Adult Tickets: £24.
Child Tickets: £7 (five to 16 year-olds). Under-5s are admitted free.
Family Tickets: 2 adults and up to 3 children £49.
Car parking is free on both days. Clear directions will be given by signs as you approach from Brigg.
Many Brigg folk visit the show year after year, and a number of local firms support the  stands.
Over the years those we've photographed include the Tom Wood Brewery, Pipers Crisps and Peacock and Binnington.
Around 600 exhibitors will be trading at the Lincolnshire Show alongside a host of exciting performances and attractions, including Broke FMX, the UK’s top-ranked freestyle motocross riders, who will be returning by popular demand. 
Jayne Southall, CEO of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “With such a wide range of attractions, stands and non-stop entertainment over the two days, there is something for everyone, whether young or old, a returning or a first-time visitor. We’re delighted to be welcoming not only large scale attractions but also a wide range of local businesses to showcase their products to the public.
“We’re always looking to develop the Lincolnshire Show whilst keeping the charm of a traditional agricultural, county Show, and we’re delighted to be introducing even more new features to this year’s event.”
New for 2017 will be the Lincolnshire Show’s very first pop-up restaurant, hosted by award-winning chef Steven Bennett. 
Steven and his team will be bringing his Grimsby-based restaurant, The Comfy Duck, to this year’s show to serve his Lincolnshire-themed take on breakfast, brunch and afternoon tea, plus a gin and fizz bar.
Further highlights include the launch of the Lincoln Knights’ Trail Education Programme, with over 40 half-sized Knights, all sponsored by local schools, making an appearance around the Show before being moved to their Trail locations across the city for the summer. The Lincolnshire Showground’s Knight, named ‘Show Us What You’ve Got’ will also be on display for visitors.
Jayne continued: “Now in our 133rd year as a county show, we really enjoy celebrating our agricultural roots as well as all that’s great about Lincolnshire. With so many trade stands, live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, aviation attractions and activities for our younger visitors, this year’s Show will be another action-packed event.”
