Cranleigh Show will be held on the Summer Solstice, June 21, this year, in a radical move away from its traditional August slot.
The change was prompted by the increasingly crowded late summer calendar, with a host of conflicting public and sporting events, and the June date is already looking to be a good choice as traders and competitors have responded with enthusiasm.
Top arena billing this year goes to scurry racing - a first for Cranleigh. This is a high speed, exhilarating, fiercely competitive sport, in which a pair of feisty ponies pulling a four wheel scurry carriage race against the clock through a course of obstacles.
Cranleigh Show is a traditional agricultural show, so it is a great way to see immaculately presented cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and poultry. And it is one of the most family friendly shows in the area, with loads of activities and entertainment for young and old.
