YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE W.I. TO ENTER THE INDUSTRIAL & HORTICULTURAL SECTIONS OF THE PENRITH SHOW! – A Guide to Entering at Penrith Show 2017

9th June 2017

PART 1

It is all good fun – Don’t get hung up on something, have a go, you may not win this year, but you will have a better idea for 2018. If you are really worried pop along to the Cumberland or Skelton Show’s and have a look in their Industrial/Home Industry Marquees, for ideas on presentation and quality.

 

PART 2

How many classes do I need to enter? – You can enter as many as you like.  You may have 1 perfect entry that wins that class, or you may place in every class and come out tops for points.

 

PART 3

All the exhibits must be your own work….you can’t just go and buy something premade EXCEPT in a “Pick up and bring” – Class 7038 for example is “A Bottle Stop – Pick up and bring” …you may have a funky or unusual bottle stop at home, that you can just pick up and bring with you on show day (please see part 4)

 

PART 4

All exhibits must be pre-entered – Please don’t get up on show morning and decide to bring a few entries…you will be very disappointed as they can’t be entered.  Entries must be submitted by form and payment to Nicky Higgins (address is on the form - http://www.penrithshow.co.uk/exhibitors/exhibitor-industrial/ ) by Monday 10th July

 

PART 5

Sometimes the wording of the Class is a little confusing to those who have never entered before – If you are not sure, give Nicky a call and she will be happy to help.  If she doesn’t know she can certainly pass you onto someone who does.

 

PART 6

Get the family involved – Get everyone to make eg a traybake and see if one wins; or compete against each other to see who gets the most points in a particular section.  You may have a laugh at the end because none of you may score at all…but you never know.

 

PART 7

Work places could get involved – The Open Group Section : Class 7101 “Autumn Glory” is crying out for a Dodd & Co vs Armstrong Watson; a Morrisons vs Booths; a North Lakes Hotel vs George Hotel or internally between works departments, to see who gets the highest number of points…2 Items of Cookery, 2 Items of Craft & 1 floral arrangement around the theme of Autumn Glory.  Marked out of 120 points, there is some competition to have here and it is a team effort!

 

PART 8

Handicrafts & Photography – They don’t have to be from 2017, it could be an article/photograph/painting that you did some years ago, but as long it was made by you and has not won a prize previously at the show it can be entered.

 

PART 9

Children’s Section – This is a wonderful way to get the kids started.  Enter as many classes as they can and points add up.

 

PART 10

Child with Pet – This is an “enter on the day event” and costs nothing.  There is no registration, just turn up outside the Secretary’s tent at 1.30pm or listen out for the tannoy announcement

 

PART 11

Costs – Classes only cost 35p to enter and Children’s classes are FREE

 

PART 12

It’s not just for women – Men and Women enter all the classes equally, but we do try and encourage the gentlemen with a “Men Only” class (7019) which this year is “4 Ginger Biscuits”.

 

PART 13

Show Day – Give yourself enough time to get here and set up.  The marquee is manned from 7am so you can arrive and set up any time after that.  All vehicles must be removed from the field to the car park by 9am.  Parking is limited, so if you could unload and move your vehicle as quickly as you can, you can return and have more time to stage your exhibit, it would help our stewards immensely .   Your exhibit must be staged by 9.30am ready for judging.

 

PART 14

Show Day – The tent reopens after 12.30, so pop back & see if you how you have done.  Cup presentations are at 4pm and prize monies collected at 4.30pm, after which exhibits can be removed.  All must be collected before 5pm.
