The Curry Rivel Flower Show needs you to enter.

Flower shows are an important part of traditional village life and should not be left to become extinct.

Planting Inspiration

Many people come to the show and think, "I could have entered my dahlias, baked that cake or grew those tomatoes".

You do not need to be Monty Don to enter.

Flowers and vegetables, cooking and crafts – there's something for everyone. Do encourage your friends and neighbours to enter.

You will be able to pick up an entry form soon from the Curry Rivel One Stop, Petrol Station, Sandpits Heating, Greenslade Taylor Hunt (Langport) and the Langport Library. You can also view the program online (see above).

So how do you enter?

Bring your completed entry form to the Curry Rivel Village Hall on Thursday 10th August, 6.30-8.30pm. For £1 you can enter any number of 89 competition classes. If you are under 17 you enter FREE.......

  • There are 24 Vegetable classes, from the largest onion to unusual tomatoes.
  • We have 25 Flower classes, lots of cut flowers and flower arranging.
