THE 2017 SHOW
In 2017, we had a record number of over 570 exhibits, from 128 exhibitors. The public attendance was also a record (though we don’t actually count numbers).
The judges generally agree that this show, despite being from a small village, has a high standard of entries, comparing favourably with other local shows of a similar size.
This year we were particularly pleased with the number of new exhibitors. Credit for this must go to Andy Birrell and the Holyport Community Board on Facebook. We are expecting further exhibitor and visitor numbers next year, as activity on the Community Board increases.
Don’t forget, we are also on Twitter @holyportshow.
Open Gardens, July 2017
On Sunday 16 July, we held our Open Gardens event (runs in alternate years). The show committee opened six gardens, the village allotments and some wild flowers for public viewing, with refreshments provided at one of the gardens. Once again this event was publicised by the Thames Valley Air Ambulance who receive the proceeds (slightly over £1000). The next Open Gardens will be in July 2019.
