Welcome to the Frenchay Flower Show 2023.
Saturday 15th July
This is a ‘not-to-be-missed’ date for your diary…be sure to join us for a fabulous time at the best local flower show for miles around!
The grand floral marquee will be filled with gorgeous blooms, fabulous displays of locally grown vegetables, delicious homemade cakes and sweet delights - proudly displayed for all to admire… but also hoping to catch the eye of the judge to win a silver cup, a coveted red winners card or perhaps a rosette…
So what's new this year?
We would love as many of you as possible to show off your talents.. so this year all entries to the competition classes are FREE…!
Enter as many prized flowers, vegetables, baking, arts & crafts as you wish. All you have to do is submit an Entry Form in advance so that we know how many entries to expect. (Please see the tab above or click here.)
We've also made changes in the schedule with some new categories, including best 'Wonky veg' (nothing rude, please!). For school entries there’s a Coronation theme which involves building a model throne.
And all the old favourites too!
Brass and wind bands, a fabulous cheerleaders' display, Punch & Judy, Morris Men, the ever popular alpacas, and the equally popular cream teas (or coffee if you prefer). And lots more fun and interest in the wide range of fantastic trade stalls.
Let's hope it's a beautifully sunny day as we enjoyed last year.

Trade stalls are booking fast - If you are interested in taking a stall at the show, please email Kathy or Mark at email@example.com, But be quick…!
With such a well-established show, local businesses and national organisations are keen to show their support with donations and sponsorship. Redrow Homes are continuing their endorsement again this year with a generous contribution.
If you have a business that would like to become involved, please get in touch with Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be delighted to speak with you.
Local people, residents and volunteers are at the heart of our flower show. Without the many hundreds of hours generously given by volunteers, our show wouldn't go ahead. So, if you want this brilliant flower show to continue next year and every year up to our centenary and 100th show, we need your help…. and we need people of all ages and interests. Why not get the whole family involved!
If you think you can help, in any capacity, throughout the year or just on show day, please get in touch with Charlotte on email@example.com

The environment is core to what we do.
The Frenchay Flower Show started with an idea from the Frenchay & Hambrook Horticultural Society in 1946, at the end of World War II.
To this day, we continue their traditional love of the land, nature and the environment around us. This year we will endeavour to reduce our carbon footprint. No single-use plastic cutlery or straws will be used, and recycling waste bins will be strategically placed.
We are also reducing our printed show materials, such as programmes, schedules and entry forms. Instead, this site will help you to download everything you need to enter competition classes, including entry forms, rules and plans.
However, recognising that not everyone has smartphones or printers, we are making a few printed entry forms available at the Frenchay Village Museum.
Some will be available on the day for £1.
The RHS - Royal Horticultural Society
We are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) whose standards, guidance and help we rely on, as in previous years, for judging exhibits and presenting awards.
The ASAO - The Association of Show & Agricultural Organisations
We are also affiliated with the ASAO, the voice of British agricultural shows.
