Organisers are hoping for even more exhibits this year after the fruitful growing season

The fine weather is expected to produce a bumper crop of entries at this year’s Seaton Show.

The event at the town hall on Sunday, August 19, is an opportunity for local residents to enter a wide variety of classes – more than 150 - including flowers, fruit and vegetables they have grown as well as exhibit their art, photography, sewing, needlework and knitting. There is also a section for youth classes.

Despite the poor weather last year, the show attracted a large number of entries and visitors. This year the organisers are hoping for more entries as the growing season has had better weather.

Exhibitors should present and display their items from 8.30am to 10.30am, after which the hall will be close for judging.

The show opens to the public from 1.30pm. The winners of each class will be announced from 3pm.

Programmes listing the exhibit classes are available from Byrne-Jones and Animal Botanical in Seaton.
