Maintaining their commitment to farmers, the organisers of the Edenbridge & Oxted Agricultural Show are determined to keep livestock showing their priority for 2023.
The show was proud to host almost 400 cattle entries in 2022, along with more than 1,000 sheep representing more than 40 different breeds. This year’s Joint Chairs, Bill Peters and Holly Taylor, recognise that seeing quality pigs, goats, cattle and sheep up close is a huge attraction for visitors, and that while the rest of the show continues to grow and evolve, livestock showing must always remain at its heart.
The timing of the show over the August bank holiday comes at the close of the season, making it the ideal place for exhibitors to relax a little and enjoy time off the farm with friends.
Keeping the event fresh and attractive to the public has also been a priority for Edenbridge & Oxted, with exciting displays from monster trucks to axemen on the programme for 2023.
All the usual additional fun returns, too, with working gundogs and terriers, local food and drink, a huge showing of vintage tractors and machinery, blacksmiths, farriers, fly fishing, horticulture and an equestrian section spanning five competition rings and featuring qualifiers for the Horse of the Year Show and The London International Horse Show.
Advance public tickets are available through the website at a discounted rate, with competition schedules issued in May.
