Preparations are well underway for this year’s Heathfield Show taking place on Saturday, May 24 at Tottingworth Farm, Broad Oak.
The Heathfield & District Agricultural Show has now launched an online booking facility on its web site: http://www.heathfieldshow.org”www.heathfieldshow.org) for all livestock and horse entries. The web site is now fully interactive allowing exhibitors to enter their classes, visitors to purchase tickets and members to join, on line.
In order to make sure the on line facility meets everybody’s requirements, the Show Society is asking for feedback on using the online facility and in return is offering a lucky winner the prize of free membership to the person whose name is pulled out of the hat on April 9. This membership will gain the winner free access to the Show and use of the members’ facilities this year.
If you would like a hard copy of the schedule please send an sae with a large 1st class stamp to the Show Secretary, Grants Cottage, Brightling, Robertsbridge, East Sussex TN32 5HZ and they will post one out to you. No late entries will be accepted.
Every year the Show evolves and this year organisers are excited to say that the Poultry section will be re-introduced. There will not only be a display of rare poultry breeds but also the much loved Sussex birds.
The Country Ways area will be full of local artisans demonstrating their skills including a wheelwright, spinner, bee keeper and blacksmiths. With the WI marquee returning for its second year and the Farmers’ Market selling all local produce and the Made in the Weald craft fair there will a huge demonstration of the produce of of our beautiful Wealden countryside as well as fashion and country clothing. The main ring attraction will once more be a show-stopping event. With skill and high risk precision movements, visitors will be in awe of the skills being displayed by Jason Smythe’s Adrenalin Tour in the main ring.
