Sussex Association Bell Ringers
Located in the Sanctuary the Sussex Bell ringers will be demonstrating bell ringing. The Association is the umbrella organisation for bell-ringing activities in Sussex. We help churches provide tuition & arrange practices to help members improve their skills. They will also be bringing along their mobile mini bell tower for visitors to try their hand at bell ringing. So why not have a go!
Sheepdog and Duck Demonstration
Don’t miss out on this fun sheep dog display, giving a brilliant demo and insight into dog behaviour. Come and be entertained as owners and their sheepdogs show off their duck herding skills. This event takes place in the cattle rings with shows taking place twice a day across the three days. When they aren’t showing off their skills the dogs love to meet people so why not drop by and say hello and talk to the owners to find out more for yourself.
Students will be taking up the tractor challenge to get a non-running tractor up and running by the end of the Show. SEVAC will be exhibiting machinery from a bygone era alongside some of the most up to date farm machinery on the market today. We will also have a wide range of modern and vintage agricultural equipment, hand operated farming implements and harvesting machines, plus latest offerings from both manufacturers and dealers alike.
