Our Annual Shows are back!
Daffodils, tulips and spring flowers in abundance. Cakes and crafts on fine display. Plus plants, pickles and produce to buy and take home.
The Pudsey Spring Show has been a fixture in the calendar for many years, giving Pudsey folk the change to show off their growing prowess. There's lots to see and do for all ages. And to celebrate our 100th Year, admission to the show is only 100 pence (that's £1 to you) for adults, 50p for children (free if accompanied by a paying adult).
Our Shows: a great afternoon out:
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ENTER - PLEASE JOIN IN!
Anyone can exhibit in our shows, so why not come along and have a go? If you've never entered before, our Centenary Year is the year to start!
As a special treat, the fee for entering in the Show is 100 pence, no matter how many entries you make. And admission on the Day is just 100 pence too! (We mean £1 of course, but you get the idea...)
You might win a prize or a TROPHY, as well as gain the kudos of being awarded one of our coveted certificates.
Everyone in the family has a chance to win prizes and certificates. Your younger ones and their older siblings can make and bake biscuits, create a flower arrangement, decorate an egg, or make a card or enter the Lego challenge.
Of course, entries from parents are also welcome!
- Do enter your Daffs or Try with your Tulips. Most of us have a few spring blooms in our garden - it is surprising how often beginners take the prize with just a carefully chosen stem right out of their flowerbed.
- Try our Novelty Classes. Float a single flower head from your garden. Or can you arrange an amazing picnic tray?
- For non-gardeners, there are prizes for home produce and baking.
- You can enter your jams, home made apple pie, tray bake or chocolate brownies; breads, wine, biscuits, or pickles and chutney
- Plus there are classes for floral art, handicrafts, sewing, embroidery, knitting, photography and drawings.
If you want to exhibit, first download a copy of the Show Schedule to decide which classes to enter. Your official entry form is on the last page.
Children's entries are free, and for this year only, the maximum fee for entries from adults is 100p! (normally 50p per item, up to a maximum of £5 - so there is no better year to try your hand at everything!). Just make sure you register your entries at the Pudsey Parish Church the evening before the show. Or save time by using our handy online form to register.
Deadline for online entries - 10.00pm on the Friday before the show. Saturday morning is reserved for staging of exhibits only.
ENTERING THE SHOW - HOW IT WORKS
1.) Registering to Enter
Because we need to work out how much space is needed to display hundreds of different items across all our different classes, you can't just turn up with your entry on the day of the show.
That's why entering requires you to register first. You tell us your name and the classes you want to enter - we give you a ticket with your entry number (one for each item) which you need to display next to your exhibit. This also anonymises your entry, so no one can tell whose is whose - which guarantees the judging is completely fair.
You can register your entry in person at the Hall the night before the show from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Or you can enter online and pick up your entry number tickets from the Show Secretary when you arrive to stage your exhibits.
2.) Staging your exhibits
Once you have your entry number, you can set out - or "stage" - your exhibits on the appropriate table. Each class will be clearly marked with a number and description. Show Stewards will be on hand to help if you have any questions.
As long as you have registered first, you can stage your entries on Friday night from 7.00 to 9.00pm. Or on Saturday morning of the show 8.45 to 11.00am.
