This year sees the 10th Anniversary of the Albourne Village Show which attempts to recreate our old Village Flower Show of the 1930s. It takes place at the Village Hall and on the green. At its core is a traditional flower and vegetable show, with additional classes for children, arts and crafts, photography, beverages, fruit, eggs, honey and all manner of culinary exhibits. Last year’s show attracted nearly 1,000 visitors and nearly 350 class entries!
Additional attractions include the 10th Anniversary Raffle (with £100 first prize), apple pressing (bring your own), vintage vehicles, a fun dog show, children’s games (including live magician), birds of prey, live music (including the Patcham Silver Band), hot food from the barbecue, cream teas, a beer tent (serving real ale and wines) and many other village and countryside exhibits and stands. Oh, and we have ice-cream and candyfloss.
Details of classes can be found here on our website (www.albournevillageshow.co.uk). Entries to all classes from those outside Albourne are welcome and indeed encouraged!
The event is just a 20 minute walk from Hurstpierpoint. Entry is 50p for adults. Free entry for children and free car parking.
