The cookery and craft tent is a very popular section of the show by both competitors and visitors to the event. The hive of activity starts early on show day and by 10:30 when judging commences the competitors have transformed the tables to a creative, colourful and inviting display.
The classes in the cookery section which include preserves are carefully chosen so that the competitors can exhibit their skills and provide a delightful display for visitors to admire.
Knitting, crochet, needlework and handicraft classes are revised regularly and include topics of current interests e.g. something new from old as well as traditional favourites.
Rural crafts are well represented and articles using wood, driftwood, corn, slate and baler twine are to be found amongst the exhibits.
Photography entries have increased during recent years and emerging photographers have succeeded in capturing contemporary scenes to enter which never fail to delight the visitor.
The children’s section aims at developing and encouraging a delight in cooking, crafts and art from an early age. Competitors are encouraged to compete in the interesting and topical age- related activities with an overall prize for the best boy and girl with the highest number of points in this section.
Call in on show day, there is something to please everyone amongst the exhibits. I’m sure that you will enjoy the experience.!
