Each year there are hundreds of hand made entries across a wide variety of classes, including:

  • Needlework and Knitting
  • Arts
  • Photography
  • Cooking and Baking
  • Flower Arranging

Children’s classes are split across four age ranges (5 and under; 8 and under; 11 and under; 16 and under) and include a variety of items across arts, crafts, baking, modelling and flower arranging. 

All classes are always keenly contested across all generations!
