About Us

For over 75 years, this Annual Show a little over a mile from the centre of Bath has retained all the charm of a traditional village show with its marquee and white tablecloths, homemade teas and cakes, traditional prize giving ceremony, rustic crafts and countryside stalls (e.g beekeepers, green woodworking), traditional children's games (e.g hook a duck and snail racing) and 100s of classes of fruit, veg, herbs, flowers, baking, photography, sculpture, art and handicrafts. There are some entertaining novelty classes and lots of children’s categories to choose from. It is a great value afternoon out for all the family.

The first Flower Show was held on August 19th 1898 in the grounds of Claverton Manor House and the 17th was held in 1960. Two World Wars as well as financial difficulties having interrupted the continuity.

It was then usually held in fields on Claverton Down but in 1959 it moved to the Community Hall, the hall itself being most convenient for the serving of teas and the exhibition of handicrafts while the grounds accommodate the tents for flowers and vegetables.
