South of England Show 2022

Friday 10th, Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th June 2022: 9am - 6.30pm

South of England Showground, Selsfield Road, Ardingly, West Sussex RH17 6TL

The South of England Show is back this year from 10-12 June in all its glory with a real focus on going back to its roots as an agricultural show. With more than 100 fun things to see and do, the three-day programme sees the return of equine and livestock competing as well as new appearances including displays from the Army and gardening competitions.

Taking place at the iconic South of England Showground, this annual event allows every generation to see, meet, and learn from farmers, landowners, rural businesses, and local artisan producers to truly connect with the countryside – and ultimately have a fun-packed day out.

Beat the queues and buy online where tickets will remain available during the show, or you can buy tickets on the gates each day.

£24 for adults and £22 for seniors/students. Under 16s go FREE when accompanied by a paying adult.

Dogs, although allowed into the show, are best left at home due to the number of people on site and the number of indoor/livestock areas where dogs are not allowed. Please ensure dogs are not left in cars and be aware that the tarmac at the showground can become very hot.

Plenty of free parking
