Gilcrux Flower & Produce Show

Come along to Gilcrux and join in traditional village fun at the annual show.
And, better even than a Farmer’s Market, you will have the opportunity to bid for exhibits after judging has taken place. Home made cakes anyone? Preserves? Fresh produce from the gardens?

  • Registration and staging of exhibits: 10 am to 12 noon
  • Flower and produce judging: 1 pm
  • Doors open for viewing and teas from 2 pm
  • Sale by auction of exhibits donated by exhibitors: 3 pm
    Admission: includes tea/coffee and biscuits and is £1.50 for adults and 50p for children.
    The Bar will be open!

    Everyone welcome
    Venue: Gilcrux Village Hall. Gilcrux, CA7 2QD.
