Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society show on Saturday, 14 July at St George's School, Windsor Castle
This years Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society show takes place on Saturday, 14 July from 11am to 5pm at St Georges School, Windsor Castle. Patron, Her Majesty the Queen invites all members of the public to attend what is a fun filled family affair.
With 100 competition classes, 40 Trade Stands, 12 events, shows and demonstrations, 2,000 visitors and 30 cups and trophies, this looks set to be a vintage year.
Founded in 1892, The Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society is one of the oldest organisations in Windsor and has been honoured with the patronage of five sovereigns; Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. The society is aimed at all ages in the community.
Andrew Try, Chairman of The Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society, says Last year we were really pleased with an increase in new entrants to all categories. I urge those who were too shy to enter last year to gird their loins, pick up their trowels, or dust down their mixing bowls and enter the show.
The show will have over 100 competitive classes for all ages and abilities in horticulture, cooking, flower arranging and crafts; along with childrens competitions for under 8s and 9-14 year olds. Prizes will be presented Air Marshal Ian Macfadyen CB OBE, Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle,.
Membership of the RWRHS is 6 for an individual or 10 for a couple, and ensures invites to the society's events. It also grants access to the member's enclosure at the Summer Show. For tickets or to find out more, visit http://www.rwrhs.org/Summer-Show_c3.htm
