Originally staged in a field next to the Institute during the 1940s by the Wrea Green Garden Produce Society, the Annual Village Show was re-introduced in 2016 by the newly formed Wrea Green Horticultural Society. The 2019 Show, held in a marquee behind the Institute, attracted over 500 entries and was visited by hundreds of villagers. The Show is very much a village event and to qualify to enter you must either live in the village or the immediate surrounding area (click here to see a map), be a member of Wrea Green Institute or attend the village school.

This year we are staging a ‘virtual’ Show with a reduced number of classes.The ‘Showstopper’ PDFs will still be posted every month. Our Facebook and Instagram pages (Links at the top of this page) will provide the latest news about the Show as well as encouraging you to get out in your own garden or to try some home cooking. Please stay safe and don’t forget to tune in to watch our Virtual Show on 5th September.
