A magnificent show, held at the New Park Showground, just outside Brockenhurst, and literally a ‘stones throw’ away from us at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. There is a vast array of sights and sounds and activities to suit all tastes and ages. The show attracts, on average 95,000 visitors every year bringing together a celebration of many traditional country pursuits, crafts, produce and entertainment.
You can bring the whole family to see the Show Farm, where children of all ages can interact with a variety of cute animals, and don’t forget to visit the Poultry Tent , where you can enjoy the chickens, ducks and geese .
Show jumping is a major feature at the show and there are international classes throughout all three days. There is also a full range of equestrian classes, as well as various livestock competitions including pigs, cattle and sheep, plus rabbits, caged birds, and honey bees.
All in all, it is a fabulous family day out, with something for everyone!!
