Dog Agility and Human Tractor Pull at the Heathfield Show

Heathfield Agricultural Show

Everything is coming together to make the 71st Heathfield & District Agricultural Show a day to remember.

The closing date for the Horse competitions is 16th April. Entries can be made on line or via post and contact the Show Secretary if you need a paper copy of the schedule.

Last year saw the first Human Tractor Pull, a tug of war between a team of six people against one tractor. Definitely something to watch in Ring 2 during the day.

Arts & Crafts have always featured heavily in Country Shows and this year the Heathfield Show is rejigging the format. Featuring more local ‘crafters’ with a larger array of products for sale and hands on demonstrations of how things are made we hope you will enjoy visiting this marquee.

In the Countryways area of the showground, there will be demonstrations of by gone crafts that formed the epicentre of any rural area. From bee keeping, to spinning, sign writing to wood carving, leather working and saddlery, many an hour can be spent wandering around these demonstrations. The United Retriever Club will be doing a live display of dog obedience and the Sussex Falconry will be flying their raptors.

Being one of the first agricultural shows of the year the Heathfield Show always attracts a good selection of trade stands and this year will be no exceptions. The agricultural machinery outlets from tractors, combines and ploughs will be present, along with oak framed buildings, field shelters, country clothing and estate agents. They will all be present making the Show the place to be on Saturday 26th May.

Discounted tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.heathfieldshow.org
