NAFAS have produced a DVD of the fabulous Festive Flower and Food Show held in Blackpool this year. The DVD has a running time of around 25 minutes, and includes 1st, 2nd & 3rd prize winners in all 19 competition classes, the special awards winners, the NAFAS Designer of the Year finalists, highlights from the Floral Catwalk Show, and general interest shots from around the show. It will be a lovely reminder of the show if you were lucky enough to go, and if you didn’t, you can still enjoy the show!

AREA DAY 2018

A message from Lesley Kay - Area Day Chairman

Arrangements are progressing well, and the Committee are looking forward to the pleasure of your company in Evesham. Taking place over a period of two days, the title is ‘Summer Magic’.

We have National Speaker Susan Horne to entertain us on each of those mornings and the very well known National Demonstrator, Derek Armstrong, to work his magic on us in the afternoons.

There will be a two-course sit down lunch (supplied via outside Caterers from Worcester), competitions and sales tables to view, plus a raffle on each of those days.


The dates are Wednesday 8th August and Thursday 9th August, 2018 and the venue is  Evesham Arts Centre Theatre and its adjacent Prince Henry’s High School, Victoria Avenue, Evesham WR11 4QH.

Doors will open at 9.30am for a 10.30am start. Tickets will be £30.00 each and will be available via Mrs Sheila Hand, - telephone number 01386-41582.


So - please make sure this date is in your diary. We look forward to seeing you for a truly magical day - whichever day you are able to come!


The competition entry form and schedule is available to download HERE.


STOP PRESS!  Tickets for both days are still available.  Hurry before they are all gone!
