Come join us and celebrate the end of the wonderful harvest season!

On 5–6 October, we will be celebrating the end of the wonderful harvest season, and we would like you to be a part of our celebrations!

Interested? Here’s what you can expect from our popular annual ‘Autumn and Countryside show: Farming Food Horticulture event’!

Step back in time and observe our traditional working demonstrations. Here you can get up close and personal whilst experiencing, heavy horses and vintage tractors ploughing – steam-powered threshing, plus woodland and rural craft demonstrations, displays and competitions – perfect for the whole family!

The annual Horticultural Show will also take place as part of the show, with classes and displays to wow all age groups!

Are you a dog lover? Each year our fun dog show, hosted by MAD About Dogs, proves popular with all of our guests. There are lots of different classes for you and your furry friend to participate in!

The Museum’s 40-acre downland site is the perfect location for this annual festival, which celebrates and showcases many traditional countryside activities.

During your visit, you will also be able to enjoy craft and trade stands, countryside theme demonstrations and experience a range of delicious produce from vendors in the Events Field and refresh yourself with a drink from the bar or our waterside café.
