ABOUT US

The South of England Event Centre is located at the South of England Showground, in between London and Brighton in the heart of the South East.

With over 25 years of organising all manner of events, from conferences and exhibitions to festivals and parties, we have the space and expertise to create an unforgettable occasion to be proud of. Run by a professional, friendly and dedicated team, our clients know they’re in safe hands when it comes to realising their vision, whether it’s for 10 people or 10,000.

From our stunning location, versatile spaces, skilled chefs and extensive list of trusted suppliers, we can provide the facilities you’ll need, whatever the requirement. Home to the famous South of England Show, we’re also adept at organising events that see up to 110,000 visitors pass through our gates every year.

The South of England Event Centre belongs to the South of England Agricultural Society, a charity which funds and supports agricultural education and countryside learning. All money generated from our venue hire goes directly towards supporting the Society’s valuable charitable work into all aspects of agriculture, including animal husbandry, horticulture and forestry. The charity is passionate about promoting knowledge and understanding of the countryside to secure a thriving rural environment for the future. To find out more about the Society’s charitable projects visit www.seas.org.uk

We are also deeply committed to adopting targets which reflect the organisation’s ethos and values of sustainability and environmentally-friendly practices. We’re also proud to have a ‘zero’ to landfill policy with all our waste recycled or converted to energy.

Jolly Good Festival

Thank you so much for all the hard work your team put into our Fiesta last Friday. It went really well, and our clients / staff had a fantastic time. The support and help provided throughout was very much appreciated and helped the event to run so smoothly. The catering team also did a fantastic job and food selection/drinks options were perfect.

Southdown Fiesta

Warners Shows organise events with all major showgrounds across England. It was a pleasure to work, from start to finish, with such a professional and helpful team on site as we launched our new event on the South of England Showground. From point of sale through to ground staff. Looking forward to returning in 2024.
