Help Darwen Flower and Vegetable Show keep going

Darwen Flower and Vegetable show ran for 6 years and was building in success.

Held each year at Four Seasons Garden Centre, Darwen.

Sadly in 2018 the event wasn’t held due to lack of funds and support on the day.

This is where I step in.  As an allotment gardener I found “showing” by chance and went along for a look.
The loval vegetable shows are fabulous and a great opportunity for local people to “show off” what they have grown from seed.
we’re not talking giant cabbages and obscene marrows here, these shows are about showing a good quality home grown exhibit, craft items and bakery.

Open to the public for viewing it’s a grand afternoon out and hopefully will inspire others to take part.

Flowers and Vegetables are the main stay of any show, but to attract more people you’ll also find classes to suit Children (our future), classes for beginners (someone who has never shown before), Craft classes, so get those knitting needles and crochet hooks out.  If you’re a Mary Berry wanna-be and can knock up a smashing set of scones get them entered

Exhibiting will cost a very modest 25 pence.  If you’re lucky enough to be awarded 1st, 2nd or 3rd place you will win cold hard cash!  Prize money for most classes is £3.

Money is what we need and this is why this page was set up.

if you would just like to send us a £1 or 2 then go for it, we’ll be over the moon with that.

Anyone who might want to sponsor a class is more than welcome.  Say for example Class 57, a jar of jam. This could be sponsored by Any One. Your name will appear by the class in the show schedule.

Businesses in Darwen are welcome to buy advertising space. £40 for a full page.  £20 for half a page or £10 for a quarter page.

Charitable donations of ANY amount are welcome too

If you’d rather send a cheque or pay by BACS just message and we’ll give you the details.

we’re building a website too

We have a Facebook group Darwen Flower Show
