Dinners and Balls

Space for your Dinner or Ball to succeed

Dine and dance the night away at our premier hospitality venue

As one of the foremost dinner dance and ballroom venues in the South East of England we know how to make your event one to remember.

Our resident caterer is more than happy to offer a range of delicious menu options to suit your preferences and special requests using the very best locally-sourced fresh produce.

In the Norfolk Pavilion we have two well-appointed rooms for large events, perfect for banquets or buffet dining – all with space to grow. The Ardingly Room can seat up to 350 people and has a dance floor. The Balcombe Room can accommodate 200 people and has a balcony with sliding doors overlooking the main showground with impressive views of the Sussex countryside.

If you’d prefer to host your dinner or ball in a beautifully-dressed marquee, we have 150 acres of grounds to provide the perfect setting for one, two or even three marquees.

There’s no need to worry about space for parking as we have room for 6,000 parked cars.

Start planning your event with a call to our dedicated team.

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.
