Working in Association with
The greatest little show in the South has gone digital, and we will be bringing you a new virtual experience from the Emsworth Show this summer to lift your spirits and reflect on the good things that have come out of these challenging times, and to inspire our local communities to grow together.
There will be no entry fees and no cups, medals or prizes awarded this year. The Emsworth Virtual Show is an opportunity for members of the Emsworth Horticultural Society and residents living within Hampshire and West Sussex to showcase their skills and talent in horticulture and other areas to a wider audience, and to encourage people all around the world to get growing.
We particularly want to encourage our young people to discover the joys of horticulture, handicrafts, cookery and photography.
We invite local businesses and entertainers who attend our show to get involved and upload their photos, videos and company profile to our Entertainment and Stallholders’ Gallery for an exciting preview for our 2021 Show, and so that we can support you and your business, to keep your business alive and to build your online presence.
We also encourage people living in Emsworth to get involved and share your stories and love for gardening in our Live Community Gardening Room.
Entries submitted will be displayed on our site and open to a public vote on Monday 31st August 2020, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd places awarded to every class in our Exhibition Rooms.
The show committee are really excited to be able to do this and have, for the first time, also introduced a special class only for gardeners from further afield.
Our new Virtual Summer Show will include four Exhibition Rooms:
1. The Horticultural Room with traditional horticulture classes for Gardens and Allotments, Vegetables, Flowers and Fruit, and a ‘For Gardeners from Further Afield Only’ Class (Gardeners out of area).
2. The Arts and Crafts Room with classes for Flower Arrangement (Floral Art), Arts and Handicrafts and Photography (Photographic Art).
3. The Family Room for Domestic and Fun Classes.
4. Young Exhibitors’ Room for children and young people only classes, aged between 5 to 18 years to get involved and discover the joys of horticulture, handicrafts, cookery and photography.
All entrants will be required to submit a form via our site, one entry form per person. Please read the entry guidance before submitting your form. Once we receive your entry, we will send you an entrant number and instructions for you to send your photographs for display in our exhibition rooms.
The photos of all entries in each or our Virtual Exhibition Rooms and Classes will be displayed on our site on Monday 31st August 2020 for public vote. Voting will be open between 10:30am and 6pm.
