a celebration of rural life
You're off to the Show! We hope the sun will be shining; there is a day packed with excitement and interest awaiting you, with plenty to entertain all ages from grandparents to toddlers.
ENTERTAINMENT ALL DAY LONG
A full programme of events in both the Jack Nash Main Arena and the John Morris Countryside Arena ranges from the wonderfully thrilling Stunt Riders Live Tour and scurry racing to the balletic elegance of the ridden hunter classes and falconry displays. Add working gun dog demonstrations, the Dorset Axemen and a cavalcade of farming history ranging from heavy horses to the latest high-tech machinery, and a triumphal parade of the county's best livestock, and you have a compulsive mix of entertainment. Also on the hand to entertain you will be the hilarious Hogg Show (the show with grunt!), the Sheep Show Roadshow, racing ferrets and much, much more..
TRADE STANDS, CRAFTS, AND ARTISAN FOOD
If you can tear yourself away, there are over 150 trade stands to browse, and the artisan food court and Farm Food marquee will supply you with mouthwatering, largely locally sourced food; you may find you need several return visits during the day! In keeping with our emphasis on connecting with the countryside, you can watch traditional rural craftsmen and women demonstrating their skills including spinning, blacksmithing and bee keeping. And if you can drag the children away from the tractor rides, pony rides and children's fair, why treat yourself to a well earned drink at one of the local brewery bars on site.
GET AWAY FROM IT ALL
At our beautiful tree-lined showground you can enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable day away from the stresses of everyday life. We hope our visitors will come away with a renewed sense of the countryside and its importance in their lives. If you fancy enjoying all the action from the comfort of the Members' marquee and Members' lawn directly adjacent to the Main Ring, why not consider becoming a Member of the Cranleigh & South Eastern Agricultural Society?
