Although hampered by an early deluge that turned the site more reminiscent of Venice than Windsor the show opened on time graced by the presence of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. The Royals spent over 2 hours, unencumbered by muddy paths and soggy grass visiting every stand and trying and buying much of the produce on offer.
The day was a great success with both visitors, trade stand holders and performers all reporting back how much fun they had had.
We will be showcasing many of the pictures of the day as they arrive. Thanks to everyone that took part and next year I guarantee better weather!
Prince and Princess Michael of Kent will be attending this year
We are very excited to announce that we will be recieving Prince and Princess Michael of Kent as our very special guests this year. The society has had a strong historical connection with the Royal family with 6 Soverigns having honoured us with their patronage. Having The Queens cousin as our guest in The Queens Diamond Jubilee year is simply wonderful.
It is now only 2 weeks to go before our 107th annual show on the 14th July at St. George’s school Windsor Castle. We have been very busy organising everything we can think of and now can report some very exciting developments.
We will have a full day of entertainment for all the family including: Bouncy Castle, falconry display, Punch and Judy, Irish Dancers, Morris Dancers, Face Painters, Beer Tent, Members Enclosure, Petting Zoo and more. We have over 40 trade stands, demonstrations in flower arranging, bee keeping and cookery and of course 100 competitive classes you can enter.
We have signed up The Berk Media Group as media partner and have sponsorship from Comxo (of course), Honda, Wyvales, Coworth Park, Grundons and the Windsor and Eton Brewery.
So come for the day or be really bold and enter a cake, an arrangement or a vegetable…its very Jubilee you know!
