Royal Cornwall Show prelim Schedule

Only eleven weeks away and the Royal Cornwall Show Blacksmith Competitions on 4th, 5th, 6th June haven’t posted a schedule yet…. come on guys!!!! and South of England Show you too. How are working smiths supposed to enter, prepare and compete with such short notice. No wonder we have trouble getting new Smiths to enter and have a go! Arghhh!

So I’ve taken an educated guess on the classes based upon what’s gone before. Check before you enter, but this should help you prepare.

Class 1 INDOOR
Any article for indoor use made in the competitor’s workshop using traditional blacksmithing methods

Class 2 OUTDOOR
Any article for outdoor use made in the competitor’s workshop using traditional blacksmithing methods

Class 3 ARTISTIC/SCULPTURAL
Any article produced in the competitor’s workshop of an artistic or sculptural design. Items in this class may use any methods preferred by the maker.

Class 4 LIVE FORGING
To be decided

Class 5 CRASH ‘N’ DASH
Competitors have 30 minutes to make any saleable item. All items made to be donated at the end of the show and go towards prize funds. This class can be entered on the day, no entry fee is required.

Please check the official schedule from the Royal Cornwall Show or look for the most recent Cornwall post on this site before entering.
