September 2019 is the 25th anniversary of the Malvern Autumn show. On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September, the Three Counties Showground hosts the annual show which promises a fun packed schedule for all the family. With so much on offer, including a fairground, fantastic shopping and plenty of animals, here are a few of the highlights to help you plan your day…
The Giant Vegetable Competition – The Malvern Autumn show hosts the CANNA UK national giant vegetables championship every year. Officials from Guinness World Records will be in attendance this year, as records are smashed by champion vegetable growers every year! Last year alone, 5 world records were broken at the Malvern Show, so expect to see plenty more giant vegetables breaking records this year!
RHS Flower Show – There are a huge variety of beautiful floral displays to enjoy at the show as nurseries all compete for the RHS gold medal. As well as enjoying the beautiful flora, there will be expert gardeners on hand from the RHS who will be there to give free advice on all aspects of creating the perfect garden. Whatever your garden quandary, come and meet the experts for a chat!
The Malvern Gin Show – New for 2019, the Malvern gin show will appeal to gin lovers everywhere! From traditional gins to all sorts of spectacular flavoured gins, gin producers from across the three counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire come together to showcase their high-quality gins. With samples on offer you can try out new flavours, and there will be a competition voted for by the people to name the Peoples Choice Gin of 2019.
World of Animals – The whole family will adore this menagerie of all creatures great and small! Kids will have the opportunity to meet some of the animals and get to know them, and there are competitions for rabbits, guinea pigs and poultry, not to mention a dog show in the dog’s arena for a wide range of canine skills and abilities. Agility isn’t just for dogs – come and see the pig agility competition – you will be amazed at what they can do! For a slower pace, the Aldabra giant tortoises will be in attendance, where you can learn all about them and meet them.
