WE ARE BACK! Annually we organise our Open Flower Show, featuring the National Begonia Society’s South West Regional Show.  

2016 was a big milestone for your show marking our 50th Show staged every year since 1966 but cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. Thankfully the Show on 8th August 2021 proved a great success with David Domoney providing a great service of opening the event and giving help and advice to everyone who attended. Exhibitors even travelled from Scotland to stage Begonias. Graham Andrews, former gardening editor at North Devon Journal as the opener for this year. He run “Graham’s Garden Buddies” on Facebook

Don’t think it is just Flowers. The Show has sections for Cacti, Pot Plants, Cut Flowers, Vegetables, Fruit, Children’s exhibits, Handicrafts, Cookery, Needlework and for Disabled or Special Needs exhibitors. To mark the 50th Anniversary we re-introduced a Floral Art Section with great success. Our new schedule is now  available so please request a copy. A link will be available nearer this time. As you can see from the pictures in the gallery below we have a vast range of sections to enter and it brings exhibitors from all over the South West and South Wales. We really do need lots of Children’s entries so please promote this to your family and friends. We will have Pannier Pantry doing the Lunches for judges and exhibitors and also doing the afternoon refreshments.

This year we will have a Club Plant Stall so bring any surplus plants or surplus cut flowers from exhibitors for us to sell.

This stall will be next to the Raffle Table and we want prizes from members for this too.

Our 55th Open Flower Show at The Pannier Market Bideford
