Lintz Hall Farm Chicken and Egg Race

Their team are always keen to involve the public and they bring a great stand situated in the Children’s Area, with free treats and drinks, games and toy tractors for little ones. They have some fantastic chicken and egg costumes created by one of Disneyworld’s costume makers, and proprietor, Richard Tulip and his team will once again be delighting the crowds with their famous ‘Chicken and Egg Race’ around the main arena before the Big Pete Monster Truck attraction. In the afternoon, the two Mascots will be organising an egg and spoon race and encouraging the audience to get into the main arena and join in the fun!
Tractors Through the Ages - Supported by Thomas Sherriffs
From a hand-held sickle, a horse drawn plough, a grey ‘Fergie’ to a computer controlled combine harvester worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, you can see a huge range of immaculate and fascinating agricultural equipment in one display. The passionate enthusiasts who lovingly restore and maintain these magnificent historic vehicles will be delighted to tell you all about their stories. You can watch them spark into action, and chug and puff around the main arena in our Parade of Tractors.
The highlight of the day for many is the Grand Parade, bringing together the prize winners from the showing classes in a spectacular, narrated parade of the Best of British livestock. The Champions from each agricultural section go forward to be judged for the coveted Champion of Champions accolade.
All times are confirmed in the Show Catalogue – available at the entrance gates on show day.
