Headline performances take place in the main ring on both the Saturday and the Sunday which includes lots of sporting events as well as a full range of other entertainment including a Games of Thrones-esque tournament.

The grounds are embroidered with trade stands, displays, activities, action, food to eat or take home and enthusiasts sharing passions - many with strong Lincolnshire roots. There will be special activities marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One which include a working replica Tank in the heritage zone.
