BAMBURGH VILLAGE SHOW 2018

‘Sowing and growing, making and baking’

CAKES, CHRYSANTHEMUMS and much, much more…….

This year’s BAMBURGH VILLAGE SHOW will take place on SATURDAY 8th SEPTEMBER 2018.

The show schedule has been reviewed and some new classes have been introduced including:

Sloe Gin

Vegetable Cake

An arrangement of flowers in an unusual container.

There is a special event open only to members of the W.I. who are being invited to create a floral display to celebrate “100 Years of Northumberland Federation and Bamburgh Women’s Institute”.

Many villagers are already busy knitting baby hats which will come together at the show to create “Bamburgh Baby Bonnet Bunting”, a display which it is hoped will encourage donations to the Tiny Lives Trust, a charity which supports premature and new-born sick infants at the RVI, Newcastle.

Following the enthusiasm for participating in judging expressed by visitors to the show last year, there will be an opportunity for the public to vote for the best tote bag design. This should be no larger than A4 in size and should use “Bamburgh Village Show” as the theme for the design. It is hoped that the winning entry might be used to create a re-usable bag and therefore contribute to local efforts to reduce / remove single use plastic products.  

“SURELY SPRING HAS SPRUNG”

All house owners in Bamburgh should start to prepare for the village front gardens competitions, a section of Bamburgh Village Show.

The initial judging in 4 areas of the village will take place in July and all gardens are automatically entered for this competition.

This year there will be 5 categories

SMALL FRONT GARDEN UNDER 6FT/184cms IN DEPTH

SMALL/MEDIUM SIZED FRONT GARDEN

LARGE FRONT GARDEN

BEST CONTAINERS FRONT GARDEN

FRONT GARDEN WITH ATTITUDE

Last year the winners seemed to be predominately from village gardens owned by residents it is hoped that this year

both second home owners and holiday letting owners make a greater show in the competitions.

Surely an added photographic bonus in advertising their holiday homes.
