Kettleburgh Village Show Saturday 1st September 2018 – 2.30 pm Kettleburgh Village Hall
The glorious weather we have been enjoying has been challenging for gardeners but I hope we will still see a fine collection of fruit, flowers and vegetables in this year’s show. If you are not a gardener or if the weather has beaten you this year please don’t despair but enter the cookery, craft or photography classes instead. Also, please encourage your children, grandchildren or any other young people you know to have a go in either the children’s or adult classes. Schedules are now available from myself or to download from the Kettleburgh website.
If you’d like to enter but have any questions or would like some advice please do get in touch and we’ll do our best to help. Entries can be brought to the village hall between 7.00 and 8.30 pm on Friday 31st August or on Saturday 1st September between 9.00 and 10.30 am. If you would like to help in any way on the day I’d be pleased to hear from you.

The Kettleburgh Flower and Produce Show has been held in the village hall for over 60 years. It is run by a group of volunteers from both Brandeston and Kettleburgh known as the Kettleburgh Village Produce Association and we are affiliated to the Suffolk Horticultural and Produce Association (SHAPA) who provide our insurance cover and judges for a fee. We hope to encourage gardening and domestic skills within the locality, friendly rivalry between contestants, to cover our costs and to produce a small surplus to cushion us in a “bad year”.
Shows are currently held on the first Saturday in September, with sections for vegetables, flowers, fruit, cookery, preserves, wine, photographs and children’s classes. We have recently added some craft classes in consultation with the Kettleburgh Craft Club. Classes are open to all wherever they live although some cups and trophies (which have been given over the years by local people or in memory of others) are only awarded to Kettleburgh residents.
During the afternoon of the show there are teas, a raffle, prize giving and an auction of produce.
We are always keen to welcome new competitors – particularly children and would welcome help with the organisation and running of the show. If you’d like to know more or would like advice about how to prepare and enter items please do get in touch with me, it’s great fun and we have a super band of gardeners willing to share their knowledge.
