Garden Show

Have you caught the gardening bug ? Gardening is more popular than ever these days, and the Festival will again be offering the chance to show off the best of your home-grown flowers, fruit and veg. Last year’s show was a resounding success and Barton under Needwood Gardening Guild will again be holding their Late Summer Show as part of the Family Festival.

The show will be held on Saturday 2nd September in St James’s churchyard.

The show is free to enter and open to both Guild members and non-members and there is a special section for children

Only one entry per person for each schedule item will be accepted.

Gardening Guild members will be there to help you stage exhibits should you require it

Judging will take place shortly after 2pm.
