CAPEL SHOW, SATURDAY 18 AUGUST 2018, CAPEL RECREATION GROUND, RH5 5LB FROM 12 NOON
125 years and still growing strong! This year Capel Horticultural Society celebrates a significant anniversary – 125 years of encouraging horticulture in Capel and surrounding villages. The founders of the first show, held in the grounds of Church Gardens Farm, would surely be amazed to see the current variety of exhibits in the Grand Marquee. Flowers, fruit, vegetables, photography, art, crafts and home produce fill the display space. Whilst outside the surrounding Recreation Ground has much to offer. Visit the traditional village fete, complete with fabulous food and drink offerings. Enjoy a delicious tea whilst listening to the silver band. Hobby and handicraft displays, exhibitors selling home-made produce, crafts and plants and a terrific fun Dog Show provide a great afternoon’s entertainment. The lower part of the ground will be filled with Classic Cars and Bikes – truly a show with something for everybody. Additionally, we are delighted that, in this anniversary year, our very own star from The Archers, Robert Snell, aka Dr Graham Blockey, has agreed to come along and present the prizes!
All this for just £5.00 per adult, children 15 and under free.
Capel Show provides local organisations and charities a great opportunity to fundraise. This year, starting at 7.30pm, Capel Cricket Club are organising a Sing-A-Long to the film The Greatest Showman. Entry is £5 per adult, under 16s free. Bring a picnic and chair, dress as one of the characters if you like, we guarantee a fun family evening. Don’t worry if the weather lets us down as we have the Marquee.
