Arts and craft by children and young people aged up to 17 years

The Junior section is a great opportunity for schools, youth groups, pre-schools/nurseries and individuals to take an active part in the Show. With themes for 2022 reflecting the many anniversaries being celebrated this year including Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, founding of the BBC, discovery of Tutankhamum’s tomb and Hadrian’s wall. Other topics include Commonwealth Games, UEFA Women’s Football, plus farming, nature and the environment. 
There are a wide range of classes to suit all age groups and abilities generating colourful and dramatic displays. Opportunities for creativity include the use of many materials and media. 
In 2020 and 2021 we ran virtual art shows which restricted the number of entries but this year we hope to return to our 2,000 entries of arts and crafts created by children and young people. Thank you to all the teachers, youth leaders, parents and supporters whose hard work ensures the success of this important community event.

In addition, the show is generously supported by sponsors  AVJ Design together with Longridge Gallery

   Goosnargh and Longridge Agricultural Show

Junior Arts and Crafts Section

Saturday 9th July 2022


A pin has a head, but has no hair;
A clock has a face, but no mouth there;
Needles have eyes, but they cannot see;
A fly has a trunk without lock or key;
A timepiece may lose, but cannot win;
A corn-field dimples without a chin;
A hill has no leg, but has a foot;
A wine-glass a stem, but not a root;
A watch has hands, but no thumb or finger;
A boot has a tongue, but is no singer;
Rivers run, though they have no feet;
A saw has teeth, but it does not eat;
Ash-trees have keys, yet never a lock;
And baby crows, without being a cock


How doth the little crocodile by Lewis Carroll

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!

Hurt no living thing by Christina Rossetti

Hurt no living thing:
Ladybird, nor butterfly,
Nor moth with dusty wing,
Nor cricket chirping cheerily,
Nor grasshopper so light of leap,
Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,
Nor harmless worms that creep.




The animal fair

We went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his golden hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk,
And slid down the elephant's trunk,
The elephant sneezed - Achoo!
And fell on her knees,
And what became of the monkey,
Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey?
