Agricultural Society

We are a charity that aims to celebrate, build awareness and develop understanding of the products that come from the land. Discover our four seasonal shows, prestigious competing opportunities, and Membership. All our shows take place at South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex.

Founded in 1967, we work across Berkshire, East Sussex, Hampshire & the Isle of Wight, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex . Central to our remit is the provision of educational events, grants and awards for people with an interest or involvement in agriculture, horticulture and other land-based industries.
