Poppleton Village Show 17th August 2024

Saturday 17th August

A brief history of the show...

Before the 1960’s the land between Nether and Upper Poppleton was largely occupied with garden nurseries and orchards. The Ancient Free Garden Society was formed in 1839 and was still going strong in 1877 and the records show that there was a vegetable and flower show in the Red Lion in 1890. In the late 1920’s the Poppleton branch of the Women’s Institute organised a flower, vegetable, fruit and handicrafts show.

In 1958 the Poppleton Garden Guild was formed, buying seeds and compost in bulk and passing the savings on to the members and the first Garden Guild Show was held in August 1959 and the show carried on till 2015, when the Guild closed.

After the closure of the Garden Guild a few people thought it would be a good idea to create the Poppleton Village Show which as well as fruit, flowers and vegetables now includes handicrafts, floral art and baking show categories. On the Green there are also stalls, vintage cars, a brass band and in 2023 a fun dog show was added.
