Our Annual Shows - Not to be missed!
Saturday 28 March: 47th Pudsey Spring Show, CANCELLED
Saturday 5 September: 98th Summer Show, CANCELLED
We had hoped that by now, things would be different. However, after careful consideration, we are sorry to officially announce that this year's Pudsey Summer Show is cancelled.
There will be NO SUMMER SHOW in 2020.
Once again we apologise sincerely to all our members, supporters, exhibitors and visitors.
The Society has continued to monitor the advice from the health authorities on social distancing and has been looking at ways we could hold some kind of show safely. But due to space problems inside the building of our usual show venue, enforcing even a 1 metre distance between visitors is just not possible.
So the 2020 Pudsey Show must join the many other public events around the UK that have fallen victim to Covid-19, and will skip this year entirely.
We hope to be back in Spring 2021, with:
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO ENTER - PLEASE JOIN IN!
Anyone can exhibit in our shows, so why not come along and have a go? Entering costs only 50p and you might win a prize - 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, or decorate a stone to their own design.
Of course, entries from parents are also welcome!
- Try our Novelty Classes. Cut any single flower head from your garden. Or can you make an amazing picnic tray, or miniature garden?
- 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, 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 can enter for FREE, and for adults it's only 50p per item (up to a maximum of £5, after which further entries are free). Just make sure you register your entries at the Pudsey United Reformed Church Hall 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.
