The Festival will once again be taking over the docks and water within Dock Gate 4 to bring you a whole host of activities and attractions that hark back to Southampton’s past.
In a bumper year of historical commemorations including 100 years since the start of the First World War, 70 years since the D-Day landings and 50 years celebrating Southampton’s city status, the event offers an unrivalled opportunity to step back in time into our region’s history - you can even dress up in the part!

The quayside will be packed with exhibits including historic cars, steam exhibits, heritage trams whilst Southampton’s Ocean Terminal will house many heritage and art exhibits, craft fairs and traders.

The Romsey Show

A real agricultural show and great day out with something for all the family - that’s The Romsey Show, which takes place at Broadlands on Saturday the 13th of September 2014. The show is one of the oldest in England, held annually since 1842.
Showcasing the best of British farming, it is a vital part of the County’s social calendar as cattle, goats and sheep from across the region compete for glory in the livestock classes. Hundreds of horses are entered in a huge number of equine events that range from show jumping and heavy horses to side saddle and best donkey.
 

Traditional countryside activities are highlighted with displays of falconry, gun dog training and the ever popular parade of hounds, while some of the more unusual animals in the showground include otters, alpacas and water buffalo. Gastronomes can sample the culinary delights of the Food Zone, selling award winning local produce, while shoppers can browse the 500 plus trade stands offering everything from quad bikes to organic compost.
Community are well represented with exhibitions by the WI, scouts and other local organisations, such as the art group, beekeepers association and the wine makers circle.
Those with green fingers can enjoy the dazzling displays staged for the flower arranging competitions and by specialist nurseries featured in the horticultural marquee.
There’s also a marching band, family dog show, parade of traction engines, fur & feather tent and an exciting programme of main ring entertainment that includes the Grand Parade of prize winning livestock. This is the high point of the day, when livestock exhibitors can display their hard work and the public can catch a glimpse of what farming is about.
