In pictures: The 113th Royal Windsor Summer Show

Georgina Bishop

Grown produce, flower arrangements, bakes, preserves and crafts were all on show at the 113th Royal Windsor Summer Show on Saturday, July 14.

Primarily the show is an opportunity for adults and children to exhibit their aptitude in various competition classes in the hope of being placed when judges make their final decisions.

The show  was opened at 11am by Peter Seabrook within the walls of Windsor Castle at St George’s School.

Visitors took their time musing over the impressive quality of entries found on display throughout the grounds, observing who had won what while discussing their personal favourites.

However the class’s competition was just one element of the show.

Peter, who is a keen grower and veteran gardening journalist said: “It’s enormous fun. Anything that brings three generations together to have a social engagement has to be right.”

A full timetable of entertainment that ran on the Headmasters lawn from start to the finish at 5pm included the atmospheric sounds of jazz trio Swing 42.

Stalls sold hats, greetings cards, art canvases, jewellery, preserves, vintage furniture and knitted products.

Children were spoilt for choice with climbing apparatus, a bouncy castle, Busy Buttons craft tables, balloon modelling, a Punch and Judy show, face painting and Basil and Crew petting farm.

It was Robyn Smith and her son, eight-month-old Oscar’s first time at the show, she said: “I’m really impressed. It’s really lovely.”

“I can’t wait for the Punch and Judy at 2pm but I think that’s more for me!”
