Welcome to the Cornwood Show website   
This website contains lots of information about the Cornwood Agricultural & Horticultural Show and the Cornwood Horse Show.  These shows, and other events during the year, are organised by the Cornwood Agricultural & Horticultural Society; you can find out more about the Society and the events using the index on the left. 

The 2016 show dates are:

  • Cornwood Agricultural & Horticultural Show: Saturday 13 August at Blachford Estate, Cornwood
  • Cornwood Horse Show: Sunday 21 August at Cadleigh

 Spring Garden Competition 

Put on your boots and pick up your fork.....

The Spring Garden Competition will be judged in April, the exact date to be confirmed.  There are two classes:

  • A Spring View
  • A Spring planted container

At the time of writing (end January), many Spring flowers are already making an early appearance due to the unseasonably mild weather, but a cold snap has been forecast - April could be interesting!  There are many lovely gardens in the Cornwood parish so come on all you shrinking violets (excuse the pun) - be proud and show it off!  You don't need to enter all of your garden - just the part that best meets the brief.

 Annual General Meeting  

The Society that puts on the shows held its AGM in January.  The attendees heard that the both the Cornwood Agricultural & Horticultural Show and the Cornwood Horse Show were very successful in 2015.  As a result of this, the Society's finances are currently in a healthy state and we will be able to invest in some new equipment this year.  The Society is also looking at additional ways to support the aims of the charity it represents - more news about that soon!  We are always looking for people to help put on the shows, you don't need to be on the committee to get involved, so please get in touch, either through the website or email cornwoodshow@gmail.com

 We need help!  
We need someone to take on the very important role of organising and managing the Horticultural Marquee for the 2017 show.  2016 is Sarah's last year as Horticulture Director and we want to find someone who would like to take it on now so that they could understudy Sarah this year to make the transition easier.  For more information email: cornwoodshow@gmail.com

 Catering and Trade Stands at the 2016 Cornwood Show 
We aim to have a variety of Trade Stands and Catering Outlets at the Cornwood Show to provide a range of relevant and interesting products and services to our show visitors.  If you are interested in booking a Trade Stand or providing Catering at the 2016 Show, please contact Sarah Bradley: email cornwoodshowdirector@gmail.com

CAHS Grants
The Cornwood Agricultural & Horticultural Society is a charity with the aim of supporting Agriculture and Horticulture in Cornwood and the surrounding area.  We do this by organising local shows and other events and, when funds allow, by providing grants to people and organisations for activities that support our aim.  For example, last year we helped Cornwood School to buy a greenhouse and in previous years we have provided grants to agricultural students.  We are now accepting applications for 2016 grants.  To find out more, click on 'About Us' in the main menu.
