The ever-popular Worcester Show, which gives local people the opportunity to put their creative and horticultural skills to the fore, is set to return to the city on Sunday 15 August 2021.

This year the show will take place on the Pitchcroft Racecourse instead of Gheluvelt Park, ensuring that there is more space on which to stage the event.

Many people have had the opportunity to put more time and energy into gardening, crafting, painting and cooking over the last year - and the Worcester Show is the ideal opportunity for them to show off their talent to the outside world.

There are over 140 competition classes to enter. In addition to gardening categories for fruit and vegetable produce, there are a large number of handicraft, cookery, art and photography classes. There are plenty of new and exciting classes to enter this year, and keep a look out for new classes on the theme of the Worcester Charter 400.

"We are delighted to bring back the Worcester Show this summer - this popular community event will give some much-needed fun and entertainment for the whole family," says Gerry Leith, Chair of the Worcester Show Committee.

"It's a great opportunity for people of all ages to show off their creative and gardening talent. You don't have to be an expert to enter, enthusiasm is the only quality you need!

"The Show will be planned and delivered with strict adherence to Government Covid guidance."

Entries for the Show, and applications for market stalls and pitches, are now open. To enter a class or to find out more about the event, go to www.worcestershow.org.uk
