Ardingly Summer Festival – the big family day out

The big family day out is back to Ardingly, Haywards Heath and tickets are nearly sold out. It is your last chance to book your space at this popular day of attractions, demonstrations, airshows and music which continues until evening. It takes place on Sat 5 August, with entertainment starting at 1pm until 10:30pm. 

There is a huge list of attractions included in the price of a ticket

This includes massive monster trucks Big Pete and Grim Reaper. Big Pete is a huge 16 ft tall and 12ft wide, making it the world’s only real monster truck. The UK’s number one motorcycle display team, Bolddog FMX will also get hearts pumping with adrenaline for their show. Prefer to be in the air rather than on the ground? Why not hop in a Hot Air Balloon* for a ride, or watch the Airborne Pyrotechnics show. 

Music to enjoy

If you are less thrill-a-long and more sing-a-long, watch Flash perform, a Queen tribute act. Also, The Brit Pop Boys will be taking the stage to imitate Gallagher swagger and an energy to pay homage to Britpop anthems. 90s vs 00s will get you on the dancefloor as iconic tracks from these two decades are blasted in a tribute to all things Britney, Beyonce, and Timberlake. 

Animals put on a show

There are also birds of prey demonstrations to keep you entertained. Witness approximately 15 birds of prey from across the world including owls, falcons, eagles and vultures soar across the arena. Or, put your own pet up for some action as visitors are invited to race their dogs in the Little Nippers Race around the arena. It is bound to be chaos! 

And more attractions

As if this is not enough to keep families entertained, there are stilt walkers, bubbles, and parkour action too. Leave time to head to the fairground and whizz around the rides**. Visitors can also pre book to do a charity bungee jump or helicopter ride. Hungry? There are a wide range of cuisines from the street food vendors as well as bars and ice-cream vans scattered around. 

What’s handy is there is free parking on site. Book your tickets at – you can save up to £6 per person by booking online.
