Slough Horticultural Show

Come along to the Slough Horticultural Show this summer in Lascelles Park - it's on Saturday 17 August, from 11am-5pm.

Organised by Slough Allotment Federation and the council, there will be competitions for the best home grown produce and best home made items, including cakes, knitted items and clothing. For keen photographers, there will be a photography competition. There are also classes for children to enter their home grown produce and home made wares.

Schools and youth groups can take part in the challenge to create a scarecrow that depicts a child’s film or book character. The scarecrow can be made using any materials and should be brought along on the day for judging.

All produce classes will be judged by professional horticultural judges which will take place earlier in the day. Best in show will be judged at 4.30pm and there will be the opportunity to buy any produce that has been entered into the competitions after this time.

Entering is easy, just download the schedules below, pick the class(es) you would like to enter and fill out the application form.

There will also be lots to see and do on the day, including:

  • Basil and crew – super cute farmyard animals,
  • fun fair rides,
  • inflatable maze,
  • bouncy castle,
  • entertainment in the main arena,
  • food and drink stalls,
  • the Slough in Bloom tent – Slough in Bloom photographs and activities,
  • the Grand Marquee – main judging.
