The New Forest Show

The New Forest Show is a three day county show event in Brockenhurst which started in 1921, which is run by over 300 volunteers each year. The New Forest Show was originally set up to give families a great day out focused around traditional country pursuits. The New Forest Show will be open on the 26th, 27th & 28th July 2016.

The New Forest Show has now become a major event within Hampshire with thousands of visitors coming along every year. There is a wealth of things to do and things to see at The New Forest Show, so why not take the family down this summer and experience the highly acclaimed county show.

There are plenty of things to see at The New Forest show with demonstrations throughout the day such as show jumping, art demonstrations and even a game cookery demonstration.
