FLOWER SHOW

Traditional Fruit and Flower Show


Held in Brailes Orchard on the last Saturday in August every year (the Bank Holiday weekend), a highlight of the social calendar. It has been held in the village for more than 75 years.

A traditional marquee houses the floral, vegetable, culinary exhibits as well as wine, beer, cider and plum jerkum, photography and arts and crafts. They are all entered into their own classes and prizes awarded.

Lots to do with an array of stalls to browse around and traditional family entertainments such as treasure hunt, skittles, coconut shy, bottle casino, tombola and a novelty dog show.

Highlights are the egg-throwing and plank plodding competitions, as well as village teas and the famous village bar.  

 

It's the main village fund raiser for the village hall, church and other village groups.
