The Evolving Adventure – Come to the Heathfield Agricultural Show – 27th May 2023
As the Organisers of the Heathfield Show work tirelessly towards bringing together a Show
day to be remembered, they are inviting potential exhibitors to enter their horses and
livestock in the showing competitions that will take place at the Show on 27th May and
become part of the evolving adventure that is the Heathfield Show.
Entries for the Livestock classes close on 11th April and Horse entries on 3rd May on line. Visit
the Show web site for full details and to enter all the competition classes available.
Now in its 76th year the Show continues to reflect all that is good and great about the High
Weald area in which we live. If you don’t have any animals to enter, then maybe aspirational
judges and animal lovers would like to head over to the livestock rings early in order to
witness the judging of the cattle, sheep and pig classes. Commentators will talk you through
what the judges are looking for in a champion showing animal. Alternatively, when judging is
not taking place, visit the animals in their stalls. The Horse competition goes on throughout
the day. There are five horse showing rings so it is recommended you consult the programme
for timings of classes – the glossy show programme is distributed free of charge to all visitors.
As well as show casing rural businesses the Show is also about the promotion of the rural way
of life and reminding people how they can become involved. The Education marquee
showcases displays from Plumpton College and the Young Farmers, and, South Brockwell
Farm will be giving our younger visitors the chance to listen to a story with live animals!
There will also be thrills and spills in the Main Ring. Big Pete, the Monster Truck will be
smashing his way across the ring and the Shetland Pony Grand National will be taking place –
talk about two very contrasting displays!
We look forward to welcoming you to the Heathfield Agricultural Show on Saturday 27th
