Budding entrants to the arts and crafts section of this year’s Todmorden Agricultural Show are reminded that a special stall is being held on Todmorden Market this Saturday, June 7, where members of the section team will receive completed entry forms.
They are also taking completed entry forms for the children’s pet show section, to help that section out.
The stall will be manned from 10am to 3pm, and dropping your completed arts and crafts form off will save you £1, a charge which will be made for entries made on the day.
Schedules and entry forms are now available from Todmorden information Centre, Todmorden Library, Todmorden Community College, Hebden Bridge Tourist Information Centre, Hebden Bridge Library, newsagent Todmorden News Centre on Bridge Street, Todmorden, and through local schools.
Classes for competitors in the adult section are handicrafts, hand crafted bead jewellery, woodwork, flower arrangements, baking, painting, pastels or drawing, three dimensional art and photography.
This year children’s rosettes have been sponsored by Todmorden based company Weir Minerals Europe Ltd, and school age classes include baking, needlework, craft, painting, handwriting, design technology and photography. There will be demonstrations in the arts and crafts tent in the afternoon, said section secretary Anne Cryer.
Arrangements for the show, which is staged by Todmorden Agricultural Society, are now almost complete as the big day approaches.
