Our flagship event!

Best of British rural life mixed with the finest entertainment

The South of England Show our flagship event, is being held this year on 5th, 6th & 7th June. During these three glorious days we will throw the spotlight on the best of British agriculture, equestrianism, horticulture, food and drink, country crafts, sports and many other activities.

Horticulture will be a central feature of this year’s Show and visitors will enjoy some spectacular displays in the flower tent, demonstrations of woodland conservation from local school children, forestry displays, the latest trends in crop production and a focus on seasonal fruit and vegetables and the best ways to grow and cook them.

We will be welcoming back the micro-sized Shetland Pony Grand National to the Ardingly Ring.  Other exciting displays will include showjumping, Young Farmers Club tug of war, Kangaroo Kids stunt show and the famous livestock display where hundreds of beef and dairy cattle, sheep, pigs and goats will have their moment of glory!

Last year we saw record numbers of people join the cavalcade of hounds and foxhound displays in the Ardingly Ring to mingle with the hounds and huntsmen and we are looking forward to re-creating this special moment again this year.
