Minstead Flower Show Society

The Minstead Flower Show Society is affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society.

It organises an annual flower, fruit and vegetable show in the Village Hall, usually on the first Saturday in September.

The sixty-eighth Show took place on Saturday 7th September 2019 and was another outstanding success thanks to lots of hard work by many.   There were a massive number of entries  and once again the Hall looked spectacular and the judges commented on the very high standard of all the exhibits.

 This year’s show will be on Saturday  5th September 2020!

The Flower Show Committee has decided that unless there is an adverse change to the current Government Covid-19 guidelines the Show will go ahead!

Further detailed plans are still being worked out so please keep a close eye on your emails and this website if you want to enter exhibits or just come along and visit.
See 2020 Flower Show Schedule for the schedule of classes, trophies and rules.

There are lots of different classes to suit everyone and new this year is  a class for a Pirate Scarecrow “ Celebrating 300+ year Anniversary of the Capture and Demise of Blackbeard” as well as a competition for children to design a poster to be used to advertise the 70th anniversary show in 2021!  See classes 76 and 77 in the schedule.

The Committee is hoping for sufficient Scarecrow entries to place them along a trail round the Village.

Please remember:
  • If you won a cup last year then return it to Jo Instrall at Little Thatch by 1st August
  • Scarecrow entry forms should be with Jo by 15th August so we can plan the trail.
  • All other entries should be with Jo no later than Wednesday 2nd September and preferably earlier.

This is now the perfect time to put all your energy into, practice and work towards your winning entries.

Keep Safe, Keep Calm and Carry on Gardening, Crafting and Cooking in Preparation for this Year’s Show!!
