Long Eaton and District Horticultural Society

Open Virtual Summer Show

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our Summer Show that was due to take place on Saturday 18th July. We know you will have all put in a lot of effort over the last year to get your exhibits ready to show. With this in mind we’re running an Open Virtual Summer Show.

Please take a photo of your entries and send your photo in via email to by 5pm Friday 31st July 2020. The photos will be displayed on our website
and on our Facebook page:   Facebook Logo

Please include your first name, location and age (if under 15 years old). Only your first name and age (if under 15 years old) will be displayed. If you don’t want your name displayed, please let us know.

The show is just for fun e.g. no judges, trophies or prizes. We have selected nine simplified classes. You can enter up to three photos per class (the exhibits are to be bona fide produced owned and grown for at least three months by the exhibitor). 

Please use the “normal” Summer Show Schedule as a guide available here.
