Available online, the ticket provides entry from after 4pm.
Mark Nicholas, show and programmes director, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to offer a brand-new evening experience to go alongside the traditional show.
“Over the last few years showgoers have been asking us to extend the show into the evening, so this year, we’re doing just that.”
One hundred stands at the Adnams Food and Drink Experience will be open until 8pm on June 27.
Meanwhile, there will be an evening programme of entertainment at the Spire Solicitors Grand Ring.
