THE South of England Showground in Ardingly RH17 6TL hosts the famous London Harness Horse Parade on Easter Monday – a chance for the whole family to experience the sights and sounds of old England.

The London Harness Horse Parade Society is offering WSG readers the opportunity to visit this spectacular show, with two people admitted for the price of one (£6).

With children under 16 going free, this means a family of four, with children under 16, can see this colourful event for just £6.

See how everything from eggs to beer were transported before the invention of the motor vehicle.

More than 100 horse drawn vehicles and carriages will take part from all over Britain, together with a parade of vintage cars and farm machinery.

Together they give visitors a visual history of how transportation has developed over the last few centuries.

There will be plaiting, harnessing and blacksmith demonstrations.

Take a ride on the Fullers Brewery Dray pulled by two of their magnificent Shires.

There will also be a good choice of trade stands for any Easter shopping and a range of food outlets offering freshly cooked food to suit all the family.

On Easter Monday, April 25, gates open at 9am with the event, an Easter tradition since 1885, starting at 10.30am with the Veterinary and Farriery inspections.

Watch the judges at work from 10.45 am for Light horses, and 11.45am for Heavy horses, with the prize giving and Grand Finale Parade at approximately 1pm.

Admission £6 per adult, under 16s & parking FREE.
