Set up in the morning will generally run at usual. We may limit numbers if it gets busy but that is unlikely. Please wear a mask whilst in the Hall.

In order to adhere to social distancing rules the show in the afternoon will be exhibition style. Visitors should again bring and wear masks whilst in the Hall. We will limit numbers in the Hall at any time using a one way system entering from the car park door nearest the stage, visitors will wind their way through the hall and out through the foyer. (Visitors with mobility issues will be offered an assessible route, please notify on entry).

The Association will not be serving teas this year but the Balcombe Club will be offering refreshments on exit.

The usual auction of produce will also not go ahead but there will be sales tables set up on Sunday 6th to sell off produce (if you have excess vegetables please feel free to donate those to the stalls).

Entry will be by donation and this together with the proceeds from the Sunday sale tables will be given to the Crawley Foodbank Partnership organisations. Regulations, Classes, Entry Form and Tips for showing are on the following pages, please support us by entering at least one thing… it’s the entries that make the show and you might be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to WIN !
