South of England Event Centre

Nestled in the heart of Sussex, surrounded by breath-taking countryside, the South of England Event Centre provides the ideal venue for any occasion.


With five dedicated indoor venues housing ten different versatile spaces plus outdoor sites available to hire across our 150-acre estate, we can provide the perfect sized event space tailored to your needs.


Public, private and corporate events have all been held in our grounds. From parties to proms, training seminars, conferences and exhibitions, team building and activity days, to motor shows, outdoor track and equestrian competitions, concerts and more, the sheer adaptability of the Event Centre and potential for growth provides the ‘Space for Success’.


The South of England Event centre is owned and operated by the South of England Agricultural Society.  All the profits generated from our venue hire go directly towards supporting our charitable work to fund and support agricultural education and countryside learning.  We’re also proud to have a ‘zero to landfill’ policy with all our waste recycled or converted to energy.
