The Royal Norfolk Island Agricultural and Horticultural Society Annual Show Day

Friday, October 18, 2019

On the 14th of October 2019 the annual A & H show commenced, beginning in the morning and finishing in the late afternoon. As usual, the event of the show meant that town was much busier than a regular day. The show is a highlight on the Norfolk Island calendar and something that the whole community can enjoy. There are a few attractions that are showcased yearly, such as the Lions Club of Norfolk Island Merry-Go-Round, delicious food, cold drinks and the fairy floss kindly made by members of the P&C. There are also many other interesting and entertaining demonstrations and activities such as the Baunti Byuutis, Ukulele Band, Devonshire Teas with the Lions Club, Face Painting, National Parks, Historical Society and the Flora and Fauna Society. The equitation is also an anticipated event, with horse riders being judged by Chris Girling. The Exhibition is in Rawson Hall, the community entries being in the main area of the building. Long tables are covered in vegetables, fruit, preserves, flowers, cookery, handicrafts, floral art and needlework. Up on the stage were some selected entries from this year’s Wearable Art Show. In the supper room onto the right hand side is the school exhibits, which is always full of artworks, sculptures, writing and reports that students have put a tremendous amount of effort into, in the hope of winning a prize in the show. As recognised in the brochure handed out to guests as they entered the Exhibition Hall, The Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society heavily thanks their sponsors and contributors. The continued support from everyone allows this traditional day to continue annually.
