The South of England Agricultural Society announce Spring Live! 2023, a two-day event on 22nd and 23rd April at the South of England Showground in Ardingly
Spring Live! activities, entertainment, stalls and competitions
The event is set to run from 9am to 5pm each day, and will offer visitors a unique opportunity to get outside and experience live and interactive entertainment, hundreds of shopping stalls, a food hall, and artisan treats from independent producers.
Younger visitors can participate in various activities, including milking Buttercup – the life-sized dairy cow in the Countryside Hub, and have the chance to meet and learn about a variety of other animals, such as sheep, pigs, pygmy goats, rabbits, and reptiles. They can also participate in seed planting, chocolate and circus skills workshops, have a go at wand making, and enjoy the thrill of the funfair, segway course, and a mobile caving experience.
The weekend event is also packed with competitions and activities, including the Alpaca Show, Sheep Show, flyball, Morris dancing, a fun dog show, Gardener’s Q&A, archery, and axe throwing.
For those who enjoy flower arranging, there’s a new workshop available at the 2023 show – visitors can try their hand at creating a Coronation Tea Cup display full of red, white, and blue blooms in celebration of King Charles’ upcoming coronation.
