Pawlett Flower Shows
Each year Pawlett Village hosts two Flower Shows; the Spring Bulb Show held on the 3rd Saturday in March followed by the Summer Flower Show, which manifests itself on the second Saturday in August. Both Shows are a staunch tradition organised by a Committee of volunteers; they are unique in the area, as they are “closed” Shows and therefore open only to residents of the Parish of Pawlett & Stretcholt for the adults. The Shows however, do not only cater for adults alone, we encourage children or grandchildren of Pawlett residents to take part.
The Spring Bulb Show schedule includes classes for bulbs and other potted plants, photography, floral art, craft and domestic, whilst the summer event encompasses vegetables, flowers & plants, hanging baskets, fruit, domestic, wine and, of course, both Shows have the children’s categories including a Fancy Dress Parade, which is the ‘opener’ for our Summer Show.
Our venue for both occasions is the Village Hall and in the summer, we hope for sunny weather to allow us to enjoy the music of the Silver Band, while savouring our afternoon Cream Teas.
The Committee work hard to keep this Village custom alive and therefore welcome any newcomers who would like to become involved – whether as a Committee Member, a new competitor or to come along to support this wonderful tradition.
