The Annual Allotment Flower Fruit & Vegetable Show

Midlands Art Centre Cannon Hill Park

August 24th 25th and 26th August 

Entries for the show need to be with the show secretary by Friday 9th August

Final Plans are being made for the annual show. As you can imagine a lot of time is taken up making sure the show is a success. It also takes a fair about of funding to be able to stage a show like this. We are always looking for contributions.

Ways to support the show:

  • Associations can make a donation of £10+ towards the cost of the show
  • Associations and individuals can sponsor individual classes, this means covering the prize money see the show schedules.
  • Donation of prizes for the tombola.
  • Enter some produce for the show. If it is your first time we will give you some help and advice. 
  • Volounteer to help over the weekend. 
  • Visit the show over the August bank holiday weekend. Plot holders who attend have the chance to win their rent paid for for a year. 
  • We are looking for sponsors of the whole show any companies interested please contact us.
  • For further information contact the show secretary Derek Cullen on

Annual Show at the MAC Cannon Hill Park August Bank Holiday weekend was the best show in years. The show committee made the brave move to hold this years show indoors at the MAC. A great decision and what a great show. Thanks to all that helped out in whatever small way. Thanks to the MAC for hosting and providing an excellent service. See show page for Show Secretarys report.
