Flower Show

Radley Flower Show is an amateur competition and community event held annually at Radley Village Hall on a Saturday in late June or early July. Participation is as important as winning and local residents have a great opportunity to show their hobbies, talents and creations or to try something new. There is a wide variety of categories that competitors may enter – and not just flowers!

The types of exhibit in the Radley Flower Show are:

  • Vegetables, Fruit and Flowers – including plants, hanging baskets
  • Floral Art
  • Domestic – including cakes, bread, preserves
  • Handicraft – including knitting, needlework, quilting, painting
  • Photography
  • Youths – 18 years and under
  • Children – children under secondary school age
  • Scarecrow competition – for groups or individuals

There is a different theme for each show – some of the categories change to reflect the theme and help bring variety to the Radley Flower Show.

Competitors pay a small entry fee for each exhibit (the Youths’ and Children’s categories are free to enter). They bring their exhibits to the village hall on the eve and/or morning of the show; judging takes place late morning.

There are cash prizes and trophies and awards to win, and a raffle. The show is opened to the public for viewing in the afternoon once judging has been completed (no charge to enter).

Radley Flower Show is run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis for the enjoyment of the community and the money raised from entry fees and the raffle is used for prizes and to cover costs.

Radley Flower Show is a long-standing village tradition – the first show was held in 1899 – and is open to all.
