Buriton Village Show, Food and Flower Festival

Our Traditional Village Show, but this year with a twist.

A Food and Flower Festival.

Come for lunch from 12.30pm

Our traditional village horticultural show, including fruit, vegetables, flowers, baking, preserves, arts and crafts will be held on Saturday 11 August.  This is a week earlier than in recent years, to avoid a clash with the bigger event in the QE Country Park.

This year we are running the show a little earlier and incorporating a food and flower festival. Come from 12.30 to sample a wide variety of foods for both instant consumption and to take away.  Among the attractions will be:

Stars at the Village Show

A Roman Legion, Darth Vader, a Jazz Band, Fancy Dress races and information about Buriton’s wonderful Dark Night Skies were amongst the star attractions at the 2017 Village Show.

There were also other popular races, competitions and stalls on the recreation ground – as well as all the wonderful displays of fruit, vegetables, flowers, baking and other crafts in the village hall.

Gardens Open

The second day of the Buriton Village Show weekend - and a chance to enjoy the beauty of a number of gardens around the parish.

More details will be available in due course.

Village Show to have Star Wars theme

The traditional horticultural, baking and arts competitions will, as usual, provide the heart of this annual event - but there are some new ideas for 2017.

All the regular classes will once again feature and everyone is encouraged to submit some entries. It is part of the fun to go into the village hall on Show afternoon to see how well you have done and to see who has produced the winners. Children's entries are particularly welcome for which there are no entry fees! 

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Star Wars film, there will be a fancy dress competition providing an opportunity for everyone to come dressed as their favourite Star Wars character.

Buriton Village Show - Cloned

Buriton's Annual Village Show has run for decades having been first introduced by Colonel Algernon Bonham Carter in the early 1930s. As well as popular classes for vegetables, fruit and flowers there were also competitions for the best cultivated vegetable garden and the most attractive flower garden, judged a few days before the show. Sports and other activities were also embraced

Today's Village Show, organised by a hard-working Committee, tries to maintain a vibrant occasion, built around those original traditions.
