NOT THE PILTON SHOW 2020



At time of writing, for obvious reasons it looks unlikely the annual village end-of-summer weekend for Pilton Show can take place, or at least not in its usual format.    We have decided not to hold the traditional Flower Show with programme but have devised some children’s classes to be judged ‘virtually ‘ on line, closing date 31st August   We hope to display photos of these entries in reality as well as on line, after judging,  if and when lockdown eases further.  


The committee regret that this ‘virtual’ judging cannot apply to all other classes.   So please ignore the 2020 schedule on Flower  Show website, as it is currently being replaced with just the children’s classes (entry details below).


However, IF by some miracle the lockdown and social distancing instructions ease, there will be good cause for celebration, for which several ideas are in the pipeline.   We might even be able to display some flowers and produce but this would not be competitive.  


No decisions can be made until there is more certainty on a national level. 


Meanwhile,  please keep the first weekend in September, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th, pencilled in diaries as we hope to be able to make suggestions or confirm in July, or failing that, August.

The committee regret that in the current circumstances we cannot extend the virtual judging to all other Sections and Classes as this unfortunately remains an impossibility. 

IF lockdown eases further, it may be possible to display

a selection of produce or flowers but this would not be competitive.
