WhAT's the flower show?

A friendly local competition with a horticultural theme. In Barcombe we hold Spring and Autumn shows in the Village Hall, but for the time being we’re moving as much as possible online.

Online or off, shows are built around classes. Classes change with the season, are open for all to enter and include some specifically for children. 

Classes are listed in a Schedule. Usually you’ll find Schedules in Barcombe shops well before each Show, but for now instructions are built into each online competition.

Classes certainly aren’t restricted to horticulture, covering cookery, photography, craft and a lot more. All follow rules from the Royal Horticultural Society. To end a Show, produce is auctioned: normally the time to pick up a bargain! Here, though, the subject range is narrower and sadly there’s no auction.

Entry to these online events is free and competition friendly. Give it a go! 

(In case you were wondering…  the Flower Show is separate from Barcombe Garden Club, though the Garden Club supports it)
