West Pinchbeck Village Show returns this September 2019




After a year of preparation contestants are set to enter their floral arrangements and baked goods to be judged at West Pinchbeck Village Hall on September 7.

With over 100 categories to choose from, at 25p per entry, submissions will be judged for the possibility to win points and maybe a prize.

Members of the public may enter as many categories as they wish, which will be on view from 3.30pm to 5pm.

Some of the most popular categories every year include cookery, especially the apple pies, handicrafts such as knitting and painting, and the disaster class – entries that didn’t quite go to plan.

Other options include the oddest shaped vegetable and most humorous limerick.

Wendy Houghton, one of the organisers, said: “The idea is to bring the community together, it’s an event we don’t want to let go of or lose.”

Since 1978 the West Pinchbeck Village Show has brought people together to admire each other’s hard work, seeing around 30 to 40 contestants taking part every year.

Perpetual cups and £5 cash prizes will be awarded to those who gain the most points in the show; one for the winning lady and one for the under 14 winner, and a shield for the winning gentleman.
