Flower Show

Cromar and District Horticultural and Industrial Society Open Show August 2020


Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, the committee have made the difficult decision to cancel not only the Plant Sale this year but also the Open Show in August 2020. We hope that all our members stay safe and healthy and look forward to welcoming you back to the 2021 Show.

Cromar & District Horticultural and Industrial Society organise the Flower Show which will be held in the MacRobert Hall, Tarland, on Saturday August 8th 2020. Doors open at 2pm with presentation of trophies at 3pm. The raffle will be drawn at 5 pm and donated produce will be available to purchase at 5:30pm.

The Show, which is open to professionals and amateurs, includes classes for novices, primary and secondary pupils and 16-18 year olds. New exhibitors are most welcome.
