Wave 105 is the official radio partner of the New Forest Show, which takes place from July 24 to 26 at New Park, Brockenhurst, Hampshire.

New for the Show this year will be the Wave 105 Music Zone, which will feature some of the south’s best live music. To secure the talent, Wave 105 urged local bands to get in touch and showcase their sound. As a result, nine acts were chosen to perform live at the New Forest Show.

Providing a great place to stop for lunch, listen to live music and chill out, the Wave 105 Music Zone will also feature children’s entertainment including face painting and balloon modelling.

Jon Brooks, Wave 105’s Sales, Marketing and Operations Director, said: “Wave 105 is extremely proud to not only be the official radio partner of the New Forest Show but also to be introducing something new and exciting.

“We wanted to offer visitors something different by showcasing local music talent live at the Wave 105 Music Zone.

“This event is one of the leading shows of its type in the UK and draws huge crowds from across the region and further afield to enjoy a superb celebration of traditional agriculture, arts and crafts all within the heart of Wave 105’s broadcasting area.”

Denis Dooley, Show Secretary for the New Forest Agricultural Show Society, commented: “We are delighted that Wave 105 is bringing such a great addition to the Show and we look forward to continue to work closely with them in the future.”
