We have come to the unfortunate decision that, with the limbo state of the country just starting to ease out of lockdown and the potential of social distancing to remain in place, we must cancel the South Downs Show in 2021.


Due to the current restrictions of the pandemic, many of our awesome arena acts have been unable to meet to practice their talents - hence meaning they feel they would be unable to execute a perfect display causing a detriment to the event’s already awesome reputation. Coupled with the latter, we also feel the fast-changing and unpredictable nature of the roadmap could also pose a financial risk for all concerned.


The event organisers are sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment caused by this announcement. If you have any further queries, contact us below.

HOWEVER not all hope is lost! The South Downs Show will be returning next year at the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Country Park.


13th & 14th August 2022
