A Feast of Festive Treats at Magical Winter Fair - 24 & 25 November

22 Nov 2018

Get ready to kick start the festive season in style, as the South of England Event centre opens its doors to this year’s magical Winter Fair on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November 2018 at the South of England Showground in Ardingly, West Sussex.

This popular show promises a warm welcome and plenty of yuletide cheer. Visitors can enjoy delicious food and drink together with enchanting entertainment, whilst selecting unique festive gifts and treats to fill any Christmas stocking to the brim.

Up to six people at any one time can jump inside the 8ft spectacular giant snow globe and be transported to a sparkling winter wonderland. There will be Christmas choirs and the NEW captivating Christmas Belles on stilts who will lead the seasonal celebrations, together with mesmerising street entertainment.

Enjoy a feast of festive treats with children able to meet Santa in his special magical grotto or visit the chocolate workshop to have a go at making their own chocolate Christmas tree decoration. Take a ride on the vintage carousel or watch the sparks fly as skillful blacksmiths create intricate pieces of metalwork. Entrance to the Show is free for under 16s, accompanied by a paying adult, offering great value for money for a wonderful day out for all the family.

Said Iain Nicol, CEO of the South of England Agricultural Society, “We are really excited about the Winter Fair this year as it always creates a fantastic festive buzz at the Showground. We hope visitors will enjoy the new and expanded layout, with more space to browse our new Clothing & Accessories and Gifts & Greetings Pavilions as well as over 60 stands selling anything from handmade Christmas puddings to chocolates, preserves and pates.

“You can pick up your seasonal pies and confectionary and choose from a range of superb cheeses to make up the perfect Christmas cheeseboard with delicious chutneys on the side, all washed down with wonderful wines, beers and spirits – there is something at this show for everyone to enjoy.”

Don’t miss live music performances taking place throughout the day from the fantastic Harry’s Tricks with their blend of 20’, 30’s and 40’s music followed by exciting acoustic singer Fred Clark, who will sing some great Christmas classics.

Shoppers can take a break at any time and sit back and relax in the undercover food court where a tantalising selection of international cuisine including Caribbean, Thai, Greek and Turkish dishes as well as traditional artisan and street food will be on offer. 

The atmosphere will be relaxed and welcoming for all ages and with ample free parking, visitors are not pressured to rush and instead can truly embrace the start of the festive season.
