Countdown for entries to this year's Worcester Show looms

Rob George 6th Aug, 2022

WHETHER you’re a great gardener, a brilliant baker or a creative crafter there’s still time to showcase your talents at this year’s Worcester Show.

With 140 competition classes, there’s something to suit entrants of all ages – and even the family dog can join in the fun. But don’t leave it too late – entries close on Monday (August 8)

All entries need to be submitted online at worcestershow.org.uk. Those without internet access can visit the Tourist Information Office for a paper copy.

Classes range from floral displays, fruit and vegetables, jams, cakes, art, photography and handicrafts – and you don’t need to be an expert – novice classes are available, plus classes just for children.

Entries for the dog show can be made on the day. All judging will take place on Saturday, August 13, excluding cacti and succulents which will be judged on Sunday (August 14).

This year’s Worcester Show will be held on August 14 in the spacious surroundings of Pitchcroft Racecourse and it promises to be a great day out for all the family.

Children can enjoy a whole host of activities from bouncy castles and a traditional merry-go-round and the ever-popular bungee rides.

Free activities include face-painting with Doorstep Princesses, crafting with Arts and Wonder and Wotahoot and the brilliant music bus from Severn Arts.

A sports zone will offer taster sessions of a variety of different sports and an array of market stalls and independent stalls will offer bargains and gifts galore.

To add to the festival atmosphere, there will be musical entertainment throughout the day spread across two stages, with bands taking to the Tom Jones main stage and other acts appearing on the community stage.

The show is delivered by Worcester City Council, supported by the Friends of Worcester Show, and for 2022, in partnership with Worcester BID and Chin Badger Media.

Mayor of Worcester, Coun Adrian Gregson said: “Worcester Show is always a fantastic day out for all the family and I’m very much looking forward to the event – there is so much to see and do.

“It’s also a great opportunity to show off your talents, whether they be cookery, gardening or art; it’s well worth entering one – or many – of the competition classes.”

Entries for the show are open until August 8. To enter a class or to find out more about the event, go to www.worcestershow.org.uk
