Welcome to the Galgate Village Show. The Galgate Gaslight Floral and Horticultural Society host this annual event every year in the village of Galgate near Lancaster. We marked our 150th anniversary in 2011 and this year will be our 155th! Come along and make this a special day! The 2016 show will take place on Saturday 20th August 2016 at the village hall. The show is a popular event in the local calendar and there will be plenty of fun for all the family! Admission to the show is free so come along and join in! We are busy planning this year’s show but as always we will be offering Fairtrade tea and coffee, and cakes! The highlight of the show will be the presentation of awards for local gardeners and horticulturalists as well as prizes for baking and preserves, local arts and crafts, and photographic competitions:
- Fruit and Vegetable Growing including the ‘Top Tray‘
- Flowers and Container Plants
- Preserves and Baking
- Arts and Crafts
There are also classes aimed at Children and New Growers with trophies given in the Special Awards categories! Remember, anyone can enter and new entrants are always welcome! The end of the show will be marked by the ever popular and informal auction of presented fruits, vegetables, flowers, baked goods and preserves! This is a great opportunity to pick up some bargains and support the village show and local community!
