SOUTH NEWINGTON FLOWER AND PRODUCE SHOW
With Village Fete
Date: August 2020
The Flower Show
The South Newington Flower and Produce Show is a long-established event in our village calendar. As well as the Show (which is open to all), we have a traditional village fete, with a band, dray from the local Hook Norton brewery, stalls, fun dog show, afternoon tea tent, along with the centre piece of the show, our magnificent marquee. Each year we introduce some new attractions so it is well worth coming along each year. We also put on a varying themed exhibition event in the historic village church. All this and there is plenty of free parking too!
In the show marquee, some 500+ entries are judged each year. The judging is a rigorous process carried out by experts in their fields. A wide variety of categories are available for entry from poultry to photography and baked goods to vegetables, as well as the delightful floral art. We even have categories aimed at the younger age groups, with child entries being categorised by age.
Around Easter time we publish a full Schedule for the show which is supported by a number of local businesses’ advertisements. The Schedule booklet is available outside our village church and is also published on the website. Submitting entries couldn’t be easier. Simply bring a completed entry form (from the Schedule) along to the entries evening, or alternatively you can submit entries by email.
The Marquee is all set to receive your entries on the morning of the show itself. Enjoy the Show while you wait to see whether you have one a silver cup which we will engrave for you and you get to keep until next year.
