The New Forest and Hampshire County Show

It’s July…and we’re in the New Forest…. so that can only mean one thing…..The New Forest and Hampshire County Show is now only a couple of weeks away!!

The theme for this year’s show is ‘hands on’, and allows you to get really stuck in with opportunities to milk a cow, make a scarecrow and hold tiny baby chicks!

Show Jumping and other fantastic displays will take place in the main arenas which are surrounded by over 600 trade stalls.

There will be livestock competitions taking place around the show including cattle, sheep, rabbits and honey bees. Also, the New Forest Beekeepers have a marquee this year demonstrating many aspects of bees and beekeeping.  You can roll your own wax candle, taste different types of honey and buy genuine New Forest honey and other bee products.

And for all you foodies out there, you can look forward to browsing the numerous food outlets which offer a full gastronomic range! If it’s inspiration you need, then visit the fantastic cookery demonstrations with appearances from a great number of fantastic chefs from the New Forest area who will be showcasing their skills every day.

With so much to choose from there’s something to suit every member of the family. Book your tickets in advance from the New Forest Show website before 21st July and receive 10% off.

The show takes place on 29th, 30th & 31st July, don’t forget to look out for us… see you there!
