South of England Autumn Show & Game Fair Given Green Light For October 2020

Following the cancellation of Spring Live! and The South of England Show, The South of England Agricultural Society has announced that the Autumn Show & Game Fair 2020 has been given the green light and will go ahead as planned.

Deemed a 'Good to Go' venue by Visit England, and adhering to strict new Covid-19 regulations, this year's show will take place at The South of England Showground in Ardingly on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October, between 9am and 5pm each day.

Although government guidelines mean that some hands-on activities will have to be restricted this year, the 2020 Autumn Show & Game Fair will still feature a programme of demonstrations and displays that celebrate the British countryside. 

Corrie Ince, new Show Director at The South of England Agricultural Society, said:

"While we had to take the difficult but right decision to cancel the spring and summer shows, we know that the South of England Showground is a huge outdoor space and, as such, is perfect place for socially distanced events. 

"Since July we have already hosted a successful International Antiques and Collectors Fair, and Drive-in Comedy and Movie nights.

"There will be hand washing and sanitising stations and a social distancing policy throughout the entire show and showground, with face coverings required in the inside areas.

" .. The South of England Agricultural Society is in fact a charity and any profits from the Autumn Show will help towards their work in showcasing the countryside to the public and supporting people across the South with an interest or involvement in agriculture and other related land-based industries. 

"They inspire schoolchildren to learn about the land and where their food comes from, offer travel bursaries for people working in the farming sector and help with funding towards agricultural research – so, when you buy a ticket for the Autumn Show & Game Fair, you will also be doing your bit to help."

For the protection of everyone at the event, tickets to the Autumn Show and Game Fair 2020 will be limited and should be booked at www.seas.org.uk before arrival to ensure entry, and to avoid queues.
