Shows and Exhibitions - PHS

Each year Purbrook Horticultural Society host 2 shows. Our spring and summer shows attract a lot of interest. Our Spring Show is held at Deverell Hall in Purbrook, the Summer Show takes place at Crookhorn School.

Summer Show - Sunday 22nd August 2021

IT'S ANOTHER VIRTUAL SHOW FOR SUMMER!

We were really hoping that we could get back to normal, but to ensure safety for visitors and members we have taken the decision to run this year with another Virtual Show. With this in mind, we have contacted all our members with the entry requirements, the classes etc and photographs can be sent from now until 22nd August 2021.

How to enter

Take a photograph of your entry and attach to an email addressed to linda.piddington@sky.com - [max of 2 photo's per email please but as many emails as wish!] The photographs will then be categorized by Class and put on our website for all to see so if you wish to enter anonymously please state in the email. It is just for fun, no judging nor prizes awarded.

You may enter as many classes and as many times as you like in each class [eg you may wish to enter Roses AND Sweetpeas under Flowers and also Cherry Tomato AND Beefsteak Tomato under Fruit and also a piece of Embroidery under Handicrafts] this will be acceptable this year as it is Virtual and thus no space constraints due to the venue. Photographs to be received from now until 22nd August 2021.
