You can hear the best bits from the Lincolnshire Show right here!
Our reporters Tom Haynes, Alex Brown, Jaike Bray, Tom Hinckley, Liam Shaw and Liam Horsley were out and about talking to the people who make our county show what it is.

The stage is set for the 131st Lincolnshire Show. Wednesday 24 June 2015, it’s early!
Our morning presenter Thomas Haynes previews the show from the Lincolnshire Life / International Bomber Command Centre stand with Siren presenter Sebastian Edgington-Cole.
One Tom H hands over the on air baton to another Tom H. It’s Haynes to Hinckley for the Lunchtime Show, all coming LIVE from the Showground.
Behind every successful Lincolnshire Show (for the last 5, anyway) is Marketing Manager, Amelia Chambers, here telling Tom Hinckley that on Day one, the show attracted record crowds.
Alan Stennett joins Siren FM’s Tom Hinckley on air to talk about the ever-changing farming industry in our county, and some trends that tend to repeat. Alan has been the Farming Producer at BBC Radio Lincolnshire since the station opened 35 years ago in 1980, and has been the Press Steward for The Lincolnshire Show for the last seventeen years too!
Alan is passionate about getting young people involved in the Agricultural industry, and he tells us about new opportunities for careers in farming.
Meanwhile, in the Schools Challenge area, Alex Brown has tracked down a group of students from North Kesteven School to find out why they are taking part in the Challenge.
Here, Alex is on his best behaviour as he interviews his future Head of Sixth form!
And now it is Thursday 25th June, and Cartwright Communications’ Jennie Holland introduces us to outgoing Show Director, Richard Collett. Richard has been at the helm of the Lincolnshire Show for the last five years.
With great precision, the RAF Falcons descend towards the Main Ring.
As the afternoon passes, there is no sign that anyone is thinking of going home.
Loads to see and do, some of which is a little unusual!
And of course, we pop in to see our friends at The University of Lincoln stand.
And finally, in the Press tent are the Siren team: Seb – Head of News, Andrew – Managing Editor, Tom – Simply Jazz host, Ant – Senior Producer and Ed – Deputy Manager & Programme Organiser.
We’re already counting down to next year. See you there?
