Bishop Auckland’s Annual Horticulture and Produce Show is back to deliver a wonderful display of locally grown flowers, produce, arts and crafts.
This year’s Show will take place in No. 42, Market Place (former Poundstretcher), Bishop Auckland on Saturday 25th September 2021 from 12 Noon to 3pm.
Organised by the Town Council with the help of local growers and in partnership with The Auckland Project, Newgate Shopping Centre, King James WI, Liz Drake, Chris Davidson and Trevor and Joan Hogg, the Show offers over 40 classes for adults and children to get involved in.
These range from classes for leeks, onions, chrysanthemum and dahlias for serious competition growers to wonky fruit and veg, Mr. Potato and Friends and designing a flower from recycled materials for the younger exhibitors. There is also a home produce category featuring jams, scones, pies, corsages, flower arrangements and a favourite of the judges… chocolate cake!
All entries must be benched on Friday 24th September, between 4pm and 8pm at No. 42.
Judging for all classes will take place from 9am on Saturday 25th September. Dahlias and Chrysanthemum will be judged to their respective society standards. National Chrysanthemum Society Certificates will be awarded for the best chrysanthemum exhibit and best vase of chrysanthemums. National Dahlia Society Certificates will be awarded for best exhibit of dahlias (silver) and best vase of dahlias (bronze).
Proceeds from the Show will go towards the Mayor’s chosen charity – County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust with funds going to Bishop Auckland General Hospital.
