Autumn Show & Game Fair 2021

Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd October 2021 9am – 5pm
South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex

A perfect autumnal day out for all ages (and canine companions), the Autumn Show & Game Fair returns with a plethora of ‘have a go’ countryside sports, displays and activities, and mouth-watering food and drink stalls – all designed to celebrate the joys of agriculture, countryside pursuits and 2021’s harvest.

Back for 2021, visitors can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, fly fishing, air rifle shooting, archery, axe throwing and more, while dog lovers can be wowed by the skilled gundogs and exciting scurries where their dogs can have a go!

Everyone will be wowed by high energy main ring acts, and children will love the kid’s activity trail, farm animals, traditional funfair, pony rides, and kite flying.

Covid measures will be in place as safety remains of utmost importance at this event.  Click here for Covid Safety Measures.
