Mole Valley Agri-Village Demo Arena

  • Livestock Parade - be sure to come and see our fantastic livestock parade at 3pm where you can see who has one the best of breed and best in show titles in the dairy goat, sheep and pygmy goat classes for 2017

  • Pigs- back for the first time in many many years we’re thrilled to have them - and although not competing this year, we’ve got some very experienced local handlers who will be teaching our visitors the (somewhat challenging) art of showing. We may even see if our piggies fancy a quick go around our demo ring agility course; that’ll definitely be something to see!
  • The Sheep Show - also in the Agri-Village performing throughout the day is the incredibly funny (and educational) Sheep Show which if you haven’t seen before is a must do, and if you have seen it already I’m sure you’ll be back - it really is a fantastic showcase of sheep breeds, shearing and dancing…
