ALL SAINTS VILLAGE SHOW & VIRTUAL SUMMER EXHIBITION 2021- ON!

SATURDAY 17 JULY 2021


The mixed messages on Covid-19 regulations have had us lurching from optimistic to pessimistic, but


the time has come to make firm decisions One thing the Committee does not want is to cancel so, given the current restrictions, we will be running a rather different show this year. There will be

fewer classes, no entry forms, no charges, no judges, no prizes ...... all just for fun!


The 2021 Show will, we hope, capture your imagination, it will be run in two parts: The Outdoor Show for Spuds-in-a-Bag and the Longest Nettle and, a new venture, The Virtual Show Exhibition for photography, art and verse.


Entering the Outdoor Show is simpler than ever this year, no need to tell us in advance - just turn up on the day with your spuds and nettles.

To enter the Virtual Show, all you need is a smartphone or a computer – just text or email your entries and leave the rest to us.


Visiting the show will be different ...... everyone is welcome to come to the car park to look at spuds and nettles but to see the other exhibits you will need to go on line to take a virtual tour of our Exhibition Galleries


The Parish Council has kindly allocated a page on its website for the Summer Show – it can be viewed from Show Day onwards. Not only will you be able to see photos of the Outdoor Show entries, but all the colouring art, photographs and limericks that have been entered.
