Organisers of the Heathfield Agricultural Show have been working tirelessly to put together a show to be remembered and inviting potential exhibitors to enter their horses and livestock in the showing competitions that will take place at the show on 27 May.

Online entries for the livestock classes close on 11 April and horse entries on 3 May. Visit the show website for full details and to enter the competition classes.

Now in its 76th year, the Heathfield Show continues to reflect all that is good and great about the High Weald area. Visitors without animals to enter should head over to the livestock rings early to witness the judging of the cattle, sheep and pig classes.

Commentators will explain what the judges are looking for in a champion showing animal, while visitors can get up close and personal to the animals in their stalls when judging is not taking place. 

The horse competition goes on throughout the day. There are five showing rings, with the class timings listed in the glossy show programme distributed free of charge to all visitors.

As well as showcasing rural businesses, the show is about promoting the rural way of life and reminding people how they can become involved. The education marquee will house displays from Plumpton College and the Young Farmers, while South Brockwell Farm will be giving younger visitors the chance to listen to a story with live animals.

There will also be thrills and spills in the main ring. Big Peter the monster truck will be smashing his way across the ring, while the Shetland Pony Grand National will offer something very different.
