South of England Showground
Looking to hire a venue for your event? Our vibrant 150-acre estate offers a host of unique event spaces, providing the ideal backdrop to any occasion.
Set in the beautiful Sussex countryside, and located just 36 miles from London and 20 miles from Brighton, we’re perfectly situated in the centre of the South East region.
Whether you need a concert showground, business meeting room, exhibition space or private party venue, our showground is amazingly versatile and can be adapted for any bespoke event, large or small.
Home to the famous South of England Show, we’re adept at organising events that see well over 100,000 visitors pass through our gates every year.
All the profits generated from our venue hire go directly towards supporting our charitable work to help agricultural projects including animal husbandry and forestry. We’re also proud to have a ‘zero’ to landfill policy with all our waste recycled or converted to energy.
Need parking? Up to 6,000 vehicles can park for free on-site. If you’re travelling by rail or air, we’re easily accessible from mainline rail stations and just 11 miles from London Gatwick Airport.
