Whether it’s live music or fairground rides, animal shows, or have-a-go activities, if there is one thing on offer at this year’s South of England Show – it’s entertainment!
Kids Activity Trail
Fun for all the family is our ever-popular activity trail which takes you around the show to all the free activities available.
The Sheep Show
The Sheep Show is an educational and humorous live stage event starring a cast of ewes and rams led by Nobby the Norfolk Horn and his two-legged MC.
Roll up, roll up! Enjoy all the fun of the fair at the fairground.
Don’t miss the incredible performances from Casablanca Steps. Their unique sound and three-part vocal harmonies, combined with a quintessentially English visual element of serious tongue-in-cheek humour, recreates 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 at the band stand next to the Grape & Grain Zone at various intervals throughout the show.
South Eastern Vintage Agricultural Club
Be amazed by the tools that helped our farmers of the past including tractors, implements and farm machines. And this will be alongside some of the most up to date farm machinery on the market today.
Hadlow College Tractor Restoration
Students will be taking up the challenge to get a non-running tractor up and running by the end of the Show!
The art of Morris Dancing, performed by Mish Mash Morris, 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! They perform dances old, new and of their own creation – a veritable mish-mash of Morris! So come and see them and get into the Morris spirit.
