The Committee are very pleased to be able to hold our Annual Potton Show on Saturday 7th September 2024

 

Although the show in its current format started in 1973 - we know that there was a Horticultural Show as far back as 1914,  but this seems to have been abandoned for many years until some enthusiastic local people got together to set up a traditional show.

 

As is now our format, the Hall & Marquee will be open to view the exhibits and prize winners from 2pm on Show Day.   (Cash entry £2)

* Please try to arrive on foot as there is only space for disabled parking at St Mary's - and limited spaces along at Potton Scout HQ on Hatley Road.  We are only a few minutes walk from either The Market Square,  or Henry Smith playing fields, via the Jubilee Path and Causeway to the Church Fields.

 

The presentation of prizes and awards will commence at 4pm 

 

following completion of prize giving we will have a fun auction;  a great opportunity to bid on many exciting donated items including the prize-winners. Always a fun part of the day!

 

On the field we will have 2 displays by The Letchworth Morris Men  and also be entertained by local musicians playing - for one night ony - as Pot'Noodle!

This year for the first time we have a fun Scarecrow competition and children's bug hunt taking place.

 

We hope to see entries from competitors both old & new in the wide variety of classes as detailed in the schedule, which is available from Tysoes Hardware, Potton Library & Potton Post Office or can be downloaded here

 

Our AGM will be held in the Community Centre at Brook End Potton in November & we really would welcome your support as without it this event cannot take place - please look out for the date & come along!

 

We are always open to suggestions to keep the show going and relevant to local needs.

 

Thank you for your interest, we look forward to seeing you!
