The Emsworth Showis held on a recreation ground, usually used for football and other similar sports. Therefore the ground may be uneven in places and visitors in wheel chairs and "buggies" may have some difficulty accessing all parts of the showground.The "South" entrance (from Tennis Court Car Park) is equipped with a wheelchair ramp to overcome the car park curb.Wherever reasonably possible, show ground staff will endeavour to help if they can.
FIRST-AID FACILITIESMembers of St John's Ambulance are on site.
THE EMSWORTH HORTICULTURAL SOCIETYThis Society, founded in 1919, is run by and for the benefit of its members. Although an Emsworth Society we welcome members from other areas.Membership is £7 per household per year available at the Distribution Store, Washington Road Allotment Site (10 am to 12 noon Sunday mornings), at any of our widely advertised talks, in the Information Tent at the Show or visit our website. Membership includes free entry to our popular talks.The Society could not be successful without the involvement of so many of its members. Members organise and help with the Distribution Store and many other tasks, which keep the Society running smoothly.Nearly 200 volunteers do so much to help make the EMSWORTH SHOW the success it has become and their efforts are much appreciated. Your help in this and other jobs would be most welcome.Any Surplus remaining from the Show income after payment of expenses is distributed to local good causes.
TOILET FACILITIESTemporary disabled toilets will be available on site. They will not require key to access them.There are also permanent toilet facilities for the disabled available on the site. These are managed by Havant District Council and a key for these is available from the Information Tent.
SEATING AREASThe Emsworth Show has seating areas around the arenas.Some stall holders, especially those supplying refreshments, also have seating areas.If it is essential that you find somewhere to sit during the day we suggest you bring a suitable portable seat with you as we cannot guarantee seating to be available.
