Tickets NOW on sale!


East Lincolnshire Showground is delighted to announce tickets are now on sale  for its first major three-day show in Skegness – which is set to be an explosive  launch with a Victory in Europe Day 75th Anniversary Celebration.

The VE 75 Festival will take place on  May 8, 2020, and feature live big bands, military re-enactments,  vintage military vehicles, 40’s entertainers and fireworks.

It is also hoped there will be Battle of Britain and Red Arrows flypasts, subject to weather and availability.

Then the retro theme will continue for two more days of live entertainment, more fireworks, food and fun.

It is one of approximately 12 events planned for 2020 – and Russell Sparkes, owner of the Grosvenor Hotel, couldn’t be more pleased with the response so far.

Mr Sparkes is ploughing substantial funds into launching the showground on the 16-acre site on Burgh Road. Which will feature marquees, stages for live entertainment, a food court, a craft & gifts marquee bars, hundreds of trade stands, camping and car parking for 840 vehicles with overflow parking availability.

Enquiries have already been flooding in regarding the  VE75 event. Mr Sparkes said: “The East Coast Showground team is excited to announce tickets are now on sale for the VE75 Festival and bookings are being taken for the trade stands.

“Over the coming weeks we will be announcing more details of the line-up for  this historic weekend, in which we will be working with other VE75 events around the area  to make the day a massive celebration to remember.

“And for those who stay with us for the whole weekend, there is a further  two-days of live entertainment and fun for all the family.” To book tickets or trade stands, and for more information on the VE75 Festival, visit
