Following the Prime Minister’s announcement last night on the lifting of coronavirus lockdown restrictions, the organisers of Heckington Show are releasing further tickets for this year’s one-day event.

All the approved Covid protections will remain in place for the show on July 24, but more people will be able to go and enjoy a taste of the best of English country life, says committee chairman Charles Pinchbeck.

Mr Pinchbeck said: “The committee have been working tremendously hard to put on a show in this very challenging year. We’re now getting to the really exciting phase of seeing the show take shape.

“Whilst it will be smaller, many of the regular favourites will be there, such as showjumping, trade stands, shire horses and delicious food stalls, and of course we are having the full firework concert in the evening.”

All visitors will need to buy tickets in advance and these can be purchased online and in the village at Donaldson’s DIY on the village High Street.
