Sevenhampton, Hawling and Charlton Abbotts Parishes
The Show is normally held annually on the Saturday preceding August Bank Holiday Monday and serves two primary functions. The first is to bring residents, friends and supporters together for an annual get-together of fun and friendly competition. The second is to raise much needed funds to support local causes. In 2015 over £2,000 was distributed across the 3 Parishes and included costs associated with instillation of Defibrillators in Hawling and Brockhampton.
Residents of the three parishes and Friends of the Show* may also enter into any or all of the nine sections of classes in the produce show. The main sections are for vegetables, flowers, preserves, cakes, handicrafts and paintings, pictures & photographs. There is an additional section for ‘on the day’ entries and a Junior Section for those aged 16 and under.
The Schedule of Classes is available in the Spring from the Show Secretary, Ray Oldham (820423), to whom queries can be addressed.
In addition to the Show entries on display there is the Fun Dog Show, the Kids Fun Zone plus refreshments, games, raffles, tombola, sports and stalls selling a wide variety of items.
The Show ends with the Grand Auction of both produce and promises such a family day pass to Sudeley Castle.
*Each year supporters of the show may become a ‘Friend of the Show’. This entails paying a subscription of £5 and agreeing to help in the running the show, its publicity and to encourage other people to participate. In return they may enter the classes of the show (if they are already eligible by being a resident) have free entry on the day, free car parking and be invited the post show ‘thank you’ party.
