Activities especially for children

Farming Fun Playground

All the fun of the farm for the youngsters to enjoy whist Mum and Dad supervise play from outside the playpen. Bales of straw to clamber on, pedal tractors to use, slides and a sandpit add up to a great way to let off steam for a few minutes.

Mill Cottage Farm Animal Petting

We’re bringing along guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, ducklings, chicks, sheep, goats, donkeys, ducks, chickens and a turkey! Come and enjoy the menagerie of animals and learn a little bit about us.

Hampshire & IOW Air Ambulance

Come and see us on stand B71!

Fit2cook

Calling all budding chefs – come and discover the fun of cooking your own food in our kids kitchen. A fun introduction to the world of cookery: next stop the Great British Bake Off! And, best of all, you get to keep and eat what you make! Thanks to Alresford Salads for sponsoring this fun activity.

Activities for all of the family

Alresford Ukulele Jam

The Alresford Ukulele Jam is Alresford’s own grown all male Ukulele group with girls in it…and occasionally instruments which are not Ukulele’s…Like any good jam it is a true mix up of musical genre’s ranging from traditional to modern, our songs take in everything from folk, modern pop, blues, country, dance, punk and jazz to rock – all are given the ukulele treatment with unique mash-ups, sing-a-longs and the ukulele “uke” box also forming part of the fun, lively set. If you like to see a small instrument truly thrashed this is the place for you!

Beagles, Hounds & Bloodhounds

The Hampshire Hunt Hounds at 12.45pm in the Main Ring. The Southdowns Bloodhounds at 15.00pm in Ring One. The Meon Valley Beagles at 14.25pm in the Main Ring.

Birds of Prey, Owls & Falcons

The Haven Falconry Display team will once again be showing their superb collection of Eagles, Falcons, Hawks and Owls during the day. The highlight of their visit to the show is the flying display in the Avenue Ring at 2.30pm – definitely something not to be missed!

Bees and Beekeeping

Come along to the bee tent and, courtesy of Meon Valley Beekeepers, learn how bees make honey, and the vital role they play in nature, assisting the reproduction of our plants and shrubs. Featuring a real bee hive, you can see close up bees turn the pollen they have collected into honey. And, of course, there will be many honey products for you to buy.

Companion Dog Show

There is always something for everyone in the Companion Dog Show, whether you are drawn to the high quality pedigree classes or bowled over by the dog the judges would most like to take home. And who will win the dog that looks most like its handler? Everyone can enter, with classes for family pets as well as potential Crufts champions. Entries are from 11.00am with judging from 12.30pm.

Ferrets & Ferret Racing

Ferret racing is great entertainment and between races you can get up close and personal with the animals – you can even stroke and handle them, to prove that they really don’t bite! Thanks to the Hants and Berks Ferret Club for making this possible.

Horse Show Rings 1 – 3

The standard of competition is excellent in a wide variety of classes from junior jumping to retrained racehorses, with mountain, moorland and pleasure driving classes to name but a few.

Horticulture Show

The Alresford and District Horticultural Society’s annual Show is always a major attraction with breath-taking displays of cut flowers and floral decorations, and magnificent vegetable and fruit exhibits from local amateur gardeners, all vying to be best in class. But the horticulture tent is about more than just flowers, plants and vegetables – there are also cookery, craft, needlework and photography competitions and exhibitions too – truly something for everyone and not to be missed.

Poultry Exhibition and Egg Show

The chicken and egg. Ever wondered which came first? Visit the poultry tent and all might be revealed! The Hants and Berks Poultry Fanciers will again be showing a wide range of poultry and ducks – some well-known and others less so. To complement the birds, John Breslain will be displaying a bewildering variety of eggs – in all colours, patterns, shapes and sizes.

Livestock Show

No Agricultural Show would be complete without its Livestock Show. Come and see some of the best cattle , sheep, pigs and goats in the region, all groomed to be at their absolute best to impress the judges. Here you will find some of the less well-known breeds and have the chance to enjoy the characters in the goat and pig exhibitions, as well as being able to touch the sheep to feel the differences in their coats. The culmination of the Livestock Show is the Grand Parade of champions in the Main Ring at 15.15pm. Please note – the livestock area will be closed to the public at 3.00pm to allow preparations for the Grand Parade.

Rural Crafts

Over 50 local exhibitors will be displaying their hand-made items, ranging from ceramics and jewellery to watercolour painting, and wood carving, and competing for the Best Exhibit trophy. There is sure to be something for everyone in the craft tent and all exhibitors will be offering items for sale – perhaps a keepsake to remind you of your visit to the Show?

Vintage Machinery

with this impressive display of vintage farm machinery. Enjoy wandering past yesteryear’s tractors, steam engines and other exhibits to see how the ancestors of today’s farmers tended the land and their livestock. And don’t miss the grand procession in the Main Ring.

W.I. Tent

Another perennial favourite, our local Women’s Institutes will be staging a number of displays and offering activities for the children. The WI Country Markets will be selling local home-made produce – cakes, preserves, crafts and plants. And of course it just wouldn’t be the WI if there were not cups of tea and cakes on sale!

There are food, three public bars and ice cream outlets at various points around the showground. In addition a range of local produce is on sale in the Produce Tent and the WI offer tea, coffee and cakes.

Members catering and bar is located adjacent to the Main ring and is provided by Creative Catering, The Holding, Chapel Ln, Easton, Winchester SO21 1HG.  Tel:  01962 849396. www.creativecateringandmarquees.co.uk
