Frenchay Flower Show Stalls

Last year was our 75th Anniversary – Wow – What a day!

The spectacular weather allowed us to welcome a record breaking number of visitors to enjoy the wonderful exhibits and varied stalls and sideshows aimed at adults and children alike. Everyone had a great day out!

We hope that you will join us again for our 76th year to make this event as great as the last or please download a copy of the schedule to see how you can enter for any of a wide range of exhibits – Go on, try your hand at a ‘Gents Button Hole’!!

As in previous years, the main marquee tent on the common adjacent to The Friends Meeting House will house the main fruit, flower and vegetable exhibits along with arts and crafts, collective exhibits, bee-keeping and food. All exhibits will be judged under the guidelines of the Royal Horticultural Society. The show secretaries desk will be located just inside the marquee entrance.

Flower arrangements and the popular photography competition will be housed in The Friends Meeting House opposite the main marquee.

Tea and cakes are being served in The Village Hall and as usual the Vintage Double Decker Busses will run a shuttle service between the main show and the Village Museum and the Vintage Car Show.

This year, In addition to these exhibits, we are welcoming The Bristol Starlight Cheer Squad, The Marshfield Brass Band, Punch and Judy, and local Morris Dancers for family entertainment.

The day will be rounded off at 5:00 with the usual auction of donated show produce.

The profits from last years show have been distributed to local good causes including The Village hall, Friends Meeting House, Frenchay St John the Baptist Church, Unitarian Chapel and local youth groups. We hope to follow the same format this year and be able to support more groups with the local community. If you would like to propose a local worthy cause please email Sue Horrocks at mail@frenchayflowershow.co.uk.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributes to the Show, to those of you who submit exhibits, judge the entries, give helpful advice and positive comments, and organize things behind the scenes.
