Save The Date

Bradford on Avon Flower & Produce Show returns to St Margaret’s Hall this year – so if you grow it, show it, on Sunday 7 September.

This is our fifth year, and we are looking forward to the biggest and best show yet – with even more categories added (and some of the less popular ones taken away) so all the family can get involved.

We’ll have fruit and veg classes based on taste – apples, pears and tomatoes – as well as on appearance. Home bakers can add bread pud and chocolate brownies to the list of classes in the cookery section, and there will be plenty of opportunities to show off your artistic skills in the craft and floral art sections. And of course, it’s still free to enter, and to attend.

Schedules will be available soon from town centre locations, including the Town Council offices and the TIC, so start planning now and help make this year’s show a real record-breaker.
