Click below to take a look at the Spring Countryside Show magazine – find everything you need to know to plan your visit and make the most of your day!

  • The map and timetables are here! Check what’s happening and make a note of what you don’t want to miss this year
  • What not to miss – the 2024 Spring Countryside Show is set to be a Grand Day Out for the whole family – from holding a chick to watching a slapstick clown car act, from racing pigs to a world-renowned landscape photographer, a bonsai expert or the heavy horse team, there’s truly something for everyone!
  • As one of the world’s leading landscape photographers, Charlie Waite’s career has included solo exhibitions at top venues in the UK, the USA and Japan, countless awards, and he is a sought-after speaker, frequently invited to share his insights on landscape photography all over the world. We’re excited to have him at the Show!
  • Jake and Tom, two long-serving Turnpike Showground volunteers, tell us just why they love to give up their free time to help out at the Shows.
  • ‘Bonsai are tender, sensitive indoor plants? Total fallacy!’ Meet Geoff Hobson, chat to him about his plants and listen to his talk in the Potting Shed.

Don’t forget to save the Spring Countryside Show magazine – – and make sure to screenshot the map and timetable on your phone to make sure you have a copy with you. Signal on the showground can be erratic on a busy show day!
