  • Complete all details on both sides of the entry form at the back of the programme should you need additional forms for children’s entries we can provide extras but we do accept photocopies provided they are double sided.
  • Deliver entry form and fees to The Folk Hall on Saturday 20th between 10 am and 3 pm (please note Folk Hall – Saturday only) OR The Flower Show Field on Monday or Tuesday before the Show as described on the form.  Alternatively you can post your entry to Elaine Hall, 27 Falcon Close, Portishead, BS20 6UT.   Late entries will not be accepted.
