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 2018 reflecting the many anniversaries being celebrated this year including the end of World War I, women entitled to vote, the formation of the NHS, the publication of Frankenstein and Captain Cook setting sail together with the royal celebrations, Football World Cup, the "blue planet" and protecting 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 and this year there are even more classes available to enter.

2017 was another successful year with over 1,600 pieces of art and craft 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.
