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 2022 Show, held in a marquee behind the Institute, attracted 570 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.
Wrea Green Rose Queen, Ginny Williams, cut the ribbon on the marquee to officially open the 2022 Show and a record number of visitors came along to take a look at the 570 entries. Congratulations to Edwina Maskell, who won the Banksina Medal for a second time, and all the Class winners. Edwina is pictured on the left, receiving her medal from Show Chair James Bretherton.The Duck Trail also started on Saturday afternoon and hundreds of families enjoyed a ramble around the village.
We will be staging our 2023 Show on Saturday 2nd September.For the latest news and updates please go to our Facebook and Instagram pages (links are at the top of this page).
The weather was once again kind to us as the forecasted showers stayed away until the Sunday evening and everyone was able to enjoy another fabulous weekend.
Well done to Annette and Steve from Ribby Road on winning the coveted Duck Trail Trophy, which was once again kindly sponsored by Roland L. Whitehead & Daughter.The Sunday Picnic has become hugely popular since it was introduced and 2022 was no exception with families enjoying their own picnic, the beer festival and music provided by firstly Cartwright Guitar Show and then Voodoo Live. Unfortunately the picnic was brought to a premature end when the heavens opened in the evening.
