Competition dates 2018

IMG_0730

Hello, that time of year again and here are the dates for this years competitions.

You’ll notice straight away we have some conflicts which is very annoying, not to mention the NHIG BathIron2018 event also conflicts with the Three Counties Show too. So I’m guessing that quite a few of us will have to make some difficult decisions this year… but if you are of an optimistic outlook, I guess its better to have choices? I have three schedules in already for this year Bath & West, South of England and yours truly Edenbridge & Oxted. I’m pressing hard this year for all the NBCC Shows to give up thier schedule ‘secrets’ well, well before the actual Competition dates so we ALL have a chance to compete and/or attend the Competitions…. watch this space?

The North Somerset show – 7 May
The Devon County Show -17, 18, 19 May
The Royal Bath and West – 30. 31 June 1, 2 May
The Royal Cornwall show -7, 8, 9 June
South of England – 7, 8, 9 June
The Royal Three Counties show – 15, 16, 17 June
