Heritage Live has announced it will host a series of outdoor concerts over the weekend of 16th -18th July 2021 at the South of England Event Centre - the beautiful 150 acre site at the heart of the most stunning countryside in Ardingly, West Sussex (home to the annual South of England Show).
Giles Cooper, promoter of Heritage Live comments “We are delighted to be bringing the best in music to this beautiful location as part of our 2021 Heritage Live concert series. The South of England Showground has always played a particularly important role in highlighting the importance of England’s farming heritage, so it is wonderful that we can also bring what will be a diverse array of music artists to this spectacular part of the country”.
The first act to be announced is Rag'n'Bone Man, who will headline a show on Friday 16th July with special guests to be announced.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Thursday 19th November, priced from £30 for the Rag'n'Bone Man show.
There is plenty of parking on-site which will be charged at £10 per car. Car-parking tickets can be bought in advance as an 'add-on' when purchasing a concert ticket, or payable on the night by cash/card.
The site is owned and operated by the South of England Agricultural Society , a charity whose Patron is Her Majesty The Queen. The South of England Agricultural Society was founded in 1967, but its early beginnings can be traced back through many hundreds of years of English farming heritage. A consolidation of agricultural societies from the 1830’s, the Society now works across the six counties of Berkshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex. The Society is a registered charity that funds and supports agricultural education and countryside learning. from showcasing the land and its industries to the public to inspiring school children to understand where their food comes from and helping with funding for students interested in a career in agriculture.
Charles Burgoyne, Chairman of the Society commented “We are absolutely delighted that Heritage Live are bringing their concerts to the South of England Event Centre and including such a fantastic local artist as Rag’n’Bone Man. Set in our beautiful showground in the heart of Sussex, it will be a great weekend of live entertainment.”
