Welcome to the Schedule for the Harrow in LEAF Show at the 2024 Headstone Village Show.

This year will be a bit different because our displays will be in the barn, a welcome return to this historic Harrow icon - built in 1506 and linking us to Harrow's agricultural past. Shows of produce started in the 1830's and are a proud reminder of the skills needed to grow fresh and healthy food.

While the weather continues to break records, good and bad, it's encouraging to think ahead to a productive year in our gardens and allotments. We hope that a look at the schedule will encourage you to try something new, whether in the arts and crafts section or the choice of tempting food ideas to try. Our visitors love to see how creative you all are.

With the Paris Olympic Games happening in the summer, some of our craft classes have a sporting theme. Do have a look and see whether you or your family are inspired to get involved. You don't need to grow the biggest vegetables or the most perfect flowers - it's enough to take part, and feel that you are contributing to your community.

Don't forget, if you enter something, you get free admission for yourself, and are really part of this special event.


Don't be afraid of showing - just have a go!

Our own 2 page "Guide to Showing" gives a lot of hints and advice.
