WI & Local Handicrafts

The Handicrafts, Cakes and Preserves Section competition of the Goosnargh and Longridge Agricultural Show is open for everyone to enter. Judges are local, and no matter how few entries there are, prizes (including first prize) are always awarded. We have 46 classes to enter; including a children’s section. All handicrafts are covered, with three fun photo classes. 

Entry is free, and whilst there is no prize money, formal Show Certificates are awarded. Trophies and Cups for Major winners are presented at the end of the day. 

Support from the Main Show Committee along with our sponsors and raffle prize donations allow this section to continue being part of the Show, and we need you to enter to keep the section alive and show what Goosnargh, Longridge and the surrounding area can create and be proud of.
