Stithians Show

We haven’t been to the show before and we’ve been missing a treat. I went this afternoon with our lovely neighbour, mainly to collect exhibits sent in by allotmenteers and to collect their prizes. There were a few firsts and some second places!
Wikipedia describes the show thus:
“Stithians Show takes place on the day after Feast Sunday in the village of Stithians, Cornwall. It was first held in 1834 and is recognised as being one of the largest one-day shows in the United Kingdom, regularly attracting in excess of 20,000 visitors, exhibitors, competitors, traders and entertainers.”
Here’s a small selection of the treats on offer.
