This year the club will be attending 4 shows, Brinsbury, Ardingly, Findon Sheep Fair and the Ploughing Match. The shows are a great way to sell your homemade produce, crafts and livestock, as well as a great opportunity to network and meet fellow smallholders. Only 10% of your sales goes to the club, to help with our running costs and to cover the costs of attending the shows. Please find details of the shows below:
Brinsbury Show and Country Fayre – Sunday 21st May; 11:00—4:00pm
We are able to sell our homemade produce and crafty bits but no livestock. We normally arrive around 9am to set up and any help with this would be greatly appreciated. The show is held at the Brinsbury Campus and our pitch is usually on the grass area adjacent to our meeting room. If you wish to attend and have produce to sell, please let myself or Andrea know. (Just so we have a rough idea of numbers)
The Smallholders and Country Show – Ardingly, showground, Saturday and Sunday 1st – 2nd July
The show is open to the public between 9am and 5pm. We set up on the Friday before and would be grateful for assistance. Our stall is located in the Young Farmers Barn opposite the Robins building.

Mark Cottington is kindly organising this show so please contact him ASAP if you wish to attend on the clubs behalf. For members attending show is is free entry, all that is required is that you help out on the stand for a couple of hours. (email@example.com)
