The Show returned to The South of England Showground last weekend after a two year break
One of the most popular summer events in Sussex returned with 3 days of sunshine. The family friendly show was able to go ahead as Visit England deemed the venue ‘Good to Go’ by following strict COVID-19 regulations and a limit in visitor numbers.
The show included hound shows, showjumping, agricultural education and plenty of food and shopping opportunities from local suppliers. There were also interactive experiences for children of all ages.
Corrie Ince, Show Director for the South of England Agricultural Society, said, “The South of England Show is the highlight of our annual calendar and is the event people truly get excited for. Over the years we have welcomed millions of visitors, many returning, who have love and a passion for the great British outdoors. While this year’s show had to be different to adhere to the new Covid safety measures, it still offered visitors the chance to really connect with the countryside, as well as rural businesses and local food producers. They were able to see, meet, learn and even buy from the farmers and landowners from across the South and so support those who have done so much to support us during the pandemic.
The South of England Agricultural Society is a charity, and our events showcase the best in agriculture, horticulture, forestry and the countryside. This helps us raise vital funds to support people with an interest or involvement in land-based industries. Our charity helps not only those in the farming sector but also provides a vital service in educating and inspiring school children to learn about the industry and the land. We would like to thank everyone that came out to support us after what has been a difficult year for so many.”
