2020 Flower Show CANCELLED (but see below for further details)
The Flower Show Committee met, virtually, on Tuesday 14th April 2020 to discuss the viability of this year’s Show.
Unfortunately, it was decided to take the unprecedented decision to cancel the Show for 2020. This was not a decision we relished making but one we believe is the correct one to make.
The reasons we came to this decision are entirely due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We are mindful of the Government’s ruling on mass gatherings and felt that we could not assume that by 15th August, these restrictions would be lifted or that life returned to a level of normalcy that would allow 500-600 persons to meet up for the Village Flower Show.
In addition, as a show we rely on a lot of small businesses and individuals who support us via advertisements/sponsorship and we felt that this would have been an expense that most could ill afford in the present climate.
We are very grateful to all our supporters and hope that you can join with us next year when we return on 21st August 2021.
With our very best wishes to you all at this time. Stay safe everyone.

Tickenham Flower Show was established in 1947 and is now in its 72nd year. The Flower Show is held annually on the third Saturday of August and provides a great opportunity to bring villagers together. Tickenham Flower Show is not just about flowers. Classes cover many different areas, including vegetables and fruits, art, domestic, wine making and photography. Also children’s’ classes, with classes from all age groups. It is a great family event.
Did you know that the main source of income is from the Jumble Sales held in Tickenham Village Hall? Bargain hunters come from as far afield as Bristol. So, if you are looking for a bargain, look out for the Tickenham Flower Show Jumble Sales. And, of course, if you have jumble to contribute, please contact any of the committee members.

Doors open at 2pm.
