Go on, have a go!

Have you been inspired by Gardeners World, Kirstie’s Handicrafts or The Great British Bake Off? Then why not enter one of the competitive classes at the Show.   There are over 300 classes for Horticulture, Handicraft, Cookery, Photography and lots of classes for children to enter.   You do not have to be an expert as we have novice sections    There really is something for all ages and abilities.      – If you don’t have a go – we won’t have a Show!
We will also be hosting the Great Portishead Bake Off. 
No pressure of completing in front of an audience.  There is a signature dish, technical (kindly set by Mokoko) and a show stopper. 
See Section 7 in the Class schedule which is available below.
