New Forest Show 2009 

It seems like only yesterday that the curtain came down on last year's New Forest Show but incredibly the doors will be open again in a few weeks time for the 2009 show. The New Forest and Hampshire County Show, to give the full title, is one of the UK's top ten agricultural and equestrian shows, and runs 28, 29 and 30 July, (08.15 to 19.00 daily), As in previous years, there is plenty of free parking but with the huge quantity of cars converging on a few fields, access can be a nightmare and you may prefer to use the pay-as-you-go shuttle bus service from Brockenhurst mainline train station.

The show was first held in 1921 and now attracts 90,000 visitors over the three days. It brings together traditional country pursuits, new exhibitions and practical demonstrations, with something to attract all age groups. This year, one of the highlights is sure to be the Pig Racing Championships!
