There really is so much to see and do at the Ploughing Match you will be able to fill your day in the countryside. The ploughing match itself is full of different types of ploughs and tractors which you can walk around and watch.
We have the main arena which will be holding many events through out the day such as bird of prey displays, gun dog demonstrations and not to forget the terrier racing!
Our show opens at 8:00am with different events happening in the main arena until 5pm.

As organisers of the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match 2020, we recognise the increased uncertainty that coronavirus (COVID-19) may be causing. This situation will remain under review and we will continue to provide regular updates.
As you will be aware, the UK risk level for coronavirus has been increased from low to moderate. However, the risk to individuals has not changed and remains low. At this point in time the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match 2020 will be going ahead as planned.
The safety of visitors and exhibitors is forefront of everything we do. We are working closely with the venue and we will continue to follow advice from the Government, the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England.
Coronavirus is a type of virus with typical symptoms including fever and a cough that may progress to severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Advice for UK residents and visitors:
The advice for UK residents who think they may be affected is to take common-sense steps to avoid close contact with other people, including not going to work, school or public areas and not using public transport. Please contact NHS 111, and do not attend a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. International visitors can also contact NHS 111 or 999.
NHS 111 is a 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week telephone advice service for members of the public to phone if they have an urgent medical concern; 999 is the contact number for emergency services (Ambulance, Fire Brigade and Police), for urgent assistance.
Please be aware that calls to 111 from an overseas-registered mobile phone, within the UK, may not work and may not be free. For anyone unable to call 111, the alternative number is 0300 020 0155.
If you are due to attend the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match 2020 and think you may be affected, please stay indoors, either at home or within your hotel room, avoiding contact with other people and please contact NHS 111 or 999.

There will be extra hand sanitisers available on site – although we recommend you bring your own if required.
