Annual Flower and Vegetable Show returns to Daventry Town

On Saturday 18th August 2018, Daventry's annual Flower and Vegetable Show will return to Daventry Town.

Hosted by Daventry Allotment and Gardening Association (DAGA) in partnership with Daventry Town Council, the Flower and Vegetable Show will be taking place at the Community Centre in Daventry and will host a plethora of homegrown flowers, fruits and vegetables, as well as homemade cakes, jams and chutneys. There will also be a Mini Craft Market with many local crafters displaying their handcrafted items.

Mark Spence, Chair of DAGA, said, "The event is always well attended, both by those who enter the show and those who come along as spectators and tasters! There were many high calibre entrants last year and we are excited to see what this year brings."

Lynn Jones, Chair of Council and Mayor of Daventry added, "The Flower and Vegetable Show is always a big hit with the local community and is becoming more popular with our younger residents. It is wonderful to see such community spirit under one roof and I look forward to presenting the winners with their prizes on the day."

General admission is free to the public from 2pm – 4pm for the Flower and Vegetable Show and from 1pm for the Mini Craft Market.

Entry forms and fees must be submitted either via the Allotment Store (located on the Welton Road Allotment) by Tuesday 12th August 2018, or via the Town Council offices no later than 4pm on Wednesday 15th August 2018. Entry forms are available at both locations.
