Cranleigh Show celebrates its 70th birthday

Cranleigh Show celebrates its 70th anniversary on Sunday June 19 with a family friendly day of hotly contested livestock and horse competitions, adrenalin filled ring entertainment, hands-on activities and shopping.

The June date is proving a winner for both competitors and visitors. Cranleigh is a very welcoming event. Children, parents, grandparents and dogs have a great time as there is so much to see and do.

The whole farmyard experience is there with commercial and rare breed sheep, wonderful breeds of beef cattle, pigs, goats and  poultry. Walking through the cattle lines and the sheep and pig pens is a fantastic way of introducing children to farm animals and the country life in a very friendly environment.

Top of the arena billing this year is a first for Cranleigh – Moto-Stunts International motorcycle display team with Britain’s No 1 female motorcycle stunt rider and skilled trick and freestyle display jumpers.

High speed Scurry Racing is back with ponies rocketing round a tight obstacle course in complete contrast  to the Sidesaddle Concours d’Elegance.

World of Wings also returns with its fabulous collection of wacky birds – think flocks of parrots free flying free and gawky hornbills staggering after amazing bird trainer Mike Simmons.

Terriers will be racing in the John Morris Countryside Arena, Massey Ferguson tractors –also celebrating their 70th – will be there with a host of other vintage tractors, and the highlight of the show will be the magnificent parade of cattle and sheep, the grand finale of a day of hot competition. It takes weeks of patience and hard work to train livestock for the show ring and get them looking their best.

There is a popular horse show with classes designed for riders and horses big and small, young and old, from lead rein ponies to retrained racehorses and stately heavy horses.

The show is at Cranleigh Showground, GU6 7DW.  Go to for entry forms and tickets.  Online discounted bookings: Adult £11; Senior (60+) £7; Children 5-16 £1. Under 5s FREE; Day membership £20.

Full price tickets will be available on the day. Parking is free.
