Ardingly Exhibition Postponed to 2022

With Covid-19 is still effecting how we all live our lives, we regretfully  have to announce that the exhibition team had no choice but to postpone our May 2021

Exhibition until the 21st May 2022.

We hope that by 2022 we will be able to host the exhibition with confidence that all our friends, members and visitors will be safe.

Our Competition Schedule is still valid and will be carried forward to the

21st May 2022 with a NEW closing date of the 7th May 2022.

We would like to thank The South of England Showground team, Our National and exhibition Chairman of Judges, demonstrators and traders for their understanding and support, plus our wonderful committee who

helped to make this difficult decision.

Finishing on a positive note keep the 8th May 2021 free and read all about
our Online Day of Demonstrations replacing the 2021 exhibition.
