Something for Everyone at Bishopsteignton Village Show

The 2012 Bishopsteignton Village Show will take place on Saturday 1 September and Sunday 2 September in Bishopsteignton Community Centre and this year features various themes inspired by village events, the Olympics and, of course, the Golden Jubilee. Bishopsteignton Village Show has a great mix of classes to enter including fabulous flowers, fruit and veg, incredible floral art, handicrafts, cookery, jams and chutneys, photography and, of course, a range of classes for the children to enter

To exhibit at this year’s show costs just 20p per entry. Exhibitors must reside, work or be a member of a club in the Bishopsteignton/Ideford Parish and, with over 75 classes to choose from, there’s bound to be something to try your hand at. All the details can be found on the Show website at and locals are being encouraged to have a go. The committee welcomes all entries from eligible participants and people can enter just one class or lots of classes if they want. There’s prize money too, and trophies for those with the most points won in various sections.

The Village Show is open to the public to look around from 2pm until 5pm on the Saturday and 11am to 4pm on the Sunday. There are cream teas served both days and Ploughman’s Lunches on the Sunday. There are also a number of stalls featuring local produce, crafts and greetings cards. Show Chairman Roy Halsey said “We’re really looking forward to seeing the range of exhibits we get this year. The Show has a lovely, traditional feel and we are lucky enough to receive support from various local businesses which helps us pay to put the show on, as well as provide a fantastic Grand Raffle to raise money.” A list of all those who have supported the 2012 Show can be found on the show’s website which also has an archive of previous year’s results and photo galleries.

Roy added “As well as all those who exhibit it’s lovely to be able to welcome members of the public to look around and be able to enjoy our Show which takes over practically every room in the Community Centre. Admission is just 50p for adults and Children are free. With some delicious refreshments on offer and great local stalls we hope plenty of people will pop in to see us over the weekend.”
