Lincolnshire Show splurge
29th August 2017
A MIGHTY £11 million was spent by visitors to this year’s Lincolnshire Show, research has estimated.
The two-day event which attracted around 60,000 visitors, saw almost £7.5 million spent at the range of trade stands, including food, drink, clothing, homeware and other specialist services.
On top of that, more than £3.5 million was spent on travel, accommodation and within local facilities including shops, restaurants and tourist spots. Jayne Southall, chief executive of Lincolnshire Showground, said: “It’s amazing to see how much the show continues to benefit the local economy.
“Both spending figures equate to a huge amount, which not only benefits businesses exhibiting at the event, but also Lincolnshire’s economy which receives a significant financial injection from the show.”
The two-day Lincolnshire Show returns in 2018 on Wednesday, June 20.
