The first Walsham-le-Willows Horticultural Society show for flowers, fruit, and vegetables took place in September 1868 when it was hoped that it would become a regular event as it was thought that…
‘the cultivation of the garden elevated the character, showed a superior mind and often betokened a well cared for home and prospering family.’
After 138 years, other than an occasional break for wars etc., it is still going strong and is regarded as being the best purely village show in the area.
It takes place in the Village Memorial Hall on the second Saturday in August.
Everyone is welcome to view the produce of Walsham’s best gardeners at the next show.
