Keen for the kids or grandkids to discover the delights of country living this spring? A visit to Spring Live! will give the whole family all the inspiration they need and, even better, children under 16 go free*!

This year’s Spring Live! - organised by the South of England Agricultural Society - will be held over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend (5th and 6th May) and promises a jam-packed programme of interactive activities to keep everyone entertained.

Whilst the family can still enjoy the traditional elements of a country show with maypole dancing, the mini-sheep show, and animal barn, this year’s event will see an exciting twist on the activities. Traditional wood spindling becomes a magical wand making workshop, knights and princesses can be wowed by medieval games and try their hand at axe throwing, animal lovers can get up close to creepy crawlies and reptiles, and wannabe drivers can test their skills on the exhilarating Segway or mini monster truck courses.

It’s not all for the kids though, parents and grandparents alike can explore the shopping area, get a few tips at the Garden Theatre, savour the delights of the artisan food hall, or simply soak in the atmosphere at the live music stage featuring an array of fantastic local talented performers.

Even better, because the South of England Showground is blessed with so many barns and indoor event spaces, there’s no need to worry about wet weather - most attractions can go ahead or be moved undercover, allowing guests to enjoy Spring Live! come rain or shine.

A bumper number of visitors is expected at the show, and all profits will be used to help fund the Society’s charitable projects that support agricultural education and countryside learning.
