NEW! Wine Walk

The South of England Show will for 2019 host its first ever Wine Walk where visitors can learn about, sample and purchase the fabulous wines direct from the vineyards who are right their doorstep. Endorsed by WineGB, the national body for British grape growers and winemakers, enthusiasts will be able to see some of our local winemakers whose vintages now rival some of the world’s top producers.

NEW! Shopping Pavilion

Come and enjoy a shopping experience in the heart of the Showground. Just off Balcombe Rise, alongside the Ardingly Ring, you’ll find an abundance of bustling retail stands selling a variety of amazing goods; everything from books, jewellery and clothing to home interiors and so much more. Shopping has never been so exciting, so come along buy a gift or souvenir, or even find the hidden treasure you’ve been looking for. Enjoy!

The Food Village

If you have a passion for food and drink make sure you fit in a visit to the Food Village which is located outside, near Green Gate and in the adjacent Queen’s Jubilee Hall. Synonymous with great food and drink, the Food Village will tempt you with fantastic cheeses, pies, meats, chutney, jams, sweets and cakes. With everything from locally-brewed beer to award-winning liqueurs, there is something for every palate.

Food and Drink

If you’re looking to have a drink or a bite to eat you will find a wide range of delicious food, bean-to-cup coffee and a selection of refreshing drinks. We also have new Street Food areas next to the Wine Walk and Bandstand and in the Entertainment Zone, plus a restaurant in Bolney Tavern. If you fancy a Pimms, a glass of Champagne or a cool G&T, look out for the range of pop up bars on Turners Hill.
