Corrie Ince, show director for the South of England Agricultural Society, said: "We were very fortunate that we were able to hold The South of England Show in 2021, albeit on a much smaller scale. With restrictions lifted we are delighted to be coming back with a bang and offering an action-packed programme.

"Visitors to the show will be able meet rural businesses and farmers, learn first-hand about countryside industries and see a huge variety of horses and livestock strutting their stuff in the main rings. A day at the show offers a unique opportunity to see and sample all the wonderful things our countryside and region have to offer."

The show lets people learn from landowners and local artisan producers.

Classic events like the cattle parades and international showjumping will be in the main ring, as will heavy horses, scurry driving and inter hunt relay competitions.
