Already Confirmed for this years show the Agricultural Society can proudly present on the Saturday The Imps Motorcycle Team.

The IMPS

The IMPS is dedicated to educating children through, though not exclusively, their leisure time activities. This is delivered by a disciplined, dynamic and challenging programme of activities with a world-famous motorcycle display team at its heart.

From the sound of revving engines to the awe of a billowing fire jump and the suspense of a multiple motorcycle combination cross-over routine, The Imps will have you mesmerised by an unmissable display of discipline and skill. Furthermore, you will be stunned to learn that the youngest performer is only five years old!

The Imps Motorcycle Display Team, noted for its impeccable smart red tunics and highly disciplined spectacular show originated in the 1970s from The Hackney Adventure Holiday Project – a charity founded by Roy Pratt MBE that provided holidays in the country for under privileged young people. Some of the children found a dysfunctional old motorbike – one thing led to another and a motorcycle display team, uniquely comprising young people aged six to sixteen, emerged.

For over forty years The Imps have performed around the world to millions of people. They are no strangers to Winterton having attended the show several years ago. The stunts performed where amazing, we look forward to meeting them again.

The Grand Float Parade

The Float parade is all set to exceed previous years, this year Stan Wood has managed to secure The Melton Mowbray Toy Soldiers Band to lead the float parade adding a special effect.

The Melton Mowbray Toy Soldiers band was formed in 1936. Their uniform consists of Red tunics (Grenadier Guard Style), white trousers with a red stripe (male and female), Bearskin type hats, White belts, White socks and Black shoes.

The band travels all over the United Kingdom performing in Carnivals, Fetes and Galas. They have competed numerous Competitions where they won more than their fair share of top three places. They have performed in the USA, touring the New York state, in Germany & in the Isle of Man where they won the World Championship for Marching Bands.

On Both Days

Also performing both days at the show is the Tom Hog Pig Show, this is the first time we have had a performance like this, it is described as being highly amusing and entertaining.

Another act for both days is the traditional scurry racing, they have being invited back due to public demand and we really look forward to meeting up with them again.

New this year we would like to welcome Colin Thompson and his North Lincs Classic Motorcycle Club. They will be performing interesting manoeuvrers over objects both days.

Worlds Biggest Monster Trucks!

This is set to be truly amazing where many cars will be crushed in the main arena, this is also the first time for this act to come to Winterton.

Another back by popular demand is the Rebel Pro Wrestling which is absolutely hilarious.
