The school summer holidays are nearly here – and with just a month to go to the fabulous Worcester Show, it’s the perfect time to let your kids show off their creative talents!
There are over 120 competition classes to enter for this year’s Show, which will take place in Gheluvelt Park on Sunday 13 August. All the classes are free to enter.
Fun and creative classes for all ages include making a space alien from play doh or modelling clay; creating a picture or collage of your favourite season; making a miniature fairy doorway and garden; building a spaceship from recyclable objects and making a sea creature out of fruit or vegetables.
Other classes range from growing giant vegetables to displaying flowers and floral decorations, creating handicrafts and photography, baking and modelling.
There are now Under 18's categories for every discipline, and a new Under 18's Trophy will be awarded for the most points overall in these classes.
Worcester Cactus Society is also offering free membership to everyone who enters the Under 18's class in Cacti & Succulents.
Gerry Leith, Worcester Show Chairman says: “It’s a great opportunity to encourage children to take a break from high tech gadgets.
“We’ve come up with several new classes for under 18s this year – children and young people will really love creating something from scratch and showing it off to others at this year’s Worcester Show.”
Many of the under 18s classes will be judged by staff from the Worcester Resource Exchange (www.wre.uk.com).
Entering the Show is simple, and free. Go to www.worcestershow.org.uk or call the Customer Service Centre on 01905 722233. The deadline to enter all classes is Monday 7 August – apart from entry to the photography classes, which have an earlier deadline of 5pm on Wednesday 2 August.
There will be a great deal for children to enjoy at the Show itself – including a Victorian carousel, bouncy castle and owl display.
