This will offer you a chance to see all the different and exciting exhibits that make up the County’s largest outdoor event. Membership is no longer available for this years Show, however you will be able to upgrade your entrance ticket on the days of the Show to enable you to visit the Members Area. To do this, please visit the Members Information Tent inside the Food and Farming area, Maidstone Exhibition Hall.
