ORGANISERS are expecting 40,000 visitors to attend this year's LAMMA Show, which is now firmly established as the UK's largest farm machinery, equipment and agricultural services event.

More than 900 exhibitors will be showcasing their wares at the event which is based at the East of England Showground and being held on January 21 and 22. Many machinery businesses now use the event as the launching pad for a whole host of new machinery, most of which are reviewed in this special feature by Ken Fletcher.

It is a free to attend event and organisers say that new parking and show logistics means that lengthy queues - which have been a problem in the past - will be kept to a minimum this year. The site, which was first used to host the event last year, has car parking for up to 10,000 cars.

Opening hours:

Wednesday, January 21 7.30am-5.00pm

Thursday, January 22 7.30am-4.30pm

Car parks will open earlier on both show days and early risers can enjoy the usual 'early bird' breakfast from 6.30am until 8.00am.
