If there is one thing on offer at this year’s South of England Show – it’s entertainment! We’re bursting at the seams with some of the county’s most tempting attractions including live music, crafts, workshops, food and drink, animals and much more!
Long Man Brewery & East Sussex College Music Stage
A live stage of fantastic fresh music with talented performers from East Sussex College who will have been competing to perform on this year’s Music Stage.
Casablanca Steps ‘Great Gatsby’ Band
The Casablanca Steps are one of the most experienced and established troupe of talented musicians and entertainers, totally unequalled in their field. Their unique sound and three-part vocal harmonies, combined with a quintessentially English visual element of serious tongue-in-cheek humour, recreate the authentic musical ambience of the 1920s & 30s, when “The Charleston” was all the rage and the “swells” were “Putting on the Ritz”. They will be appearing in Norfolk Place.
The Sheep Show
Don’t miss the fleecy fun of The Sheep Show, an educational and humorous live stage show starring a cast of ewes and rams and their two-legged MC. It’s a great way of learning about how the many breeds of sheep in the UK today have been bred over the centuries to produce the wool and meat that we rely on today. The Sheep Show is hugely popular so turn up early to make sure you get a seat! There are four shows per day so look out for timings at the Show.
Haywards Heath Rugby Club
All ages can have a go with our fantastic local team, Haywards Heath Rugby Club
Mish Mash Morris
The art of Morris Dancing, performed by an experienced group of dancers and musicians based in Sussex. The styles, or ‘traditions’, of the dances performed originate from several areas of England; “Molly” from East Anglia, “Border” from the border counties of England and Wales, and “Cotswold” from the Cotswolds! We perform dances old, new and of our own creation – a veritable mish-mash of Morris! So come and see us and get into the Morris spirit!
Knots of May
The Knots of May are a women’s Morris team formed in 1974 in Brighton. Traditional English dances still make up half of the current repertoire, but they have been augmented by other European dances from France, Flanders and Spain. Several dances have been composed more recently, some of which were written especially for the Knots of May. Come and see this spectacular display of traditional dancing – feel free to dance along!
