The Shows

The Society stages three flower shows each year – Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Spring 4th April 2020 CANCELLED due to CoronaVirus

Summer 11th July 2020

Autumn 12th September 2020

The venue is the Parish Hall of St John the Baptist, High Road, Buckhurst Hill, Essex  IG9 5RX.  The shows which are open to the public start at 2.00 pm and close at 4.30 pm.

The format for exhibits follows a formal arrangement but reflects the seasonal development of flowers, vegetables and general horticultural advances during the year. Other than floral and vegetable categories, there are also categories for Cookery and Junior classes (all three Shows), Photography (Spring) and Arts & Crafts (Summer).

All horticultural entries are judged by a member of the Essex Guild of Horticultural Judges and exhibits of other categories by judges from the respective disciplines. Winners of the various classes are awarded Cups and Trophies.
