Beechworth shows autumn ‘Bloom’

BEECHWORTH, Stanley, Murmungee, Woolshed Valley and Wooragee gardeners and growers are encouraged to enter Beechworth Arts Council’s ‘Beechworth Bloom’ autumn flower and produce show which runs March 29-31.

The Arts Council revived the district’s formal flower show during its five-week long celebration of Spring Arts last year, attracting 75 entries across a limited range of categories.

This autumn show, like last spring’s edition, will be staged in Beechworth Town Hall, where the long-defunct North East Agricultural and Horticultural Association’s first flower show was held in October 1882.

Arts Council president Jamie Kronborg said the limited-category autumn show is open to all gardeners and growers from postcode district 3747. The only proviso is that exhibits must be grown and arranged by the entrant. The autumn show also includes kitchen garden produce categories.

Intending exhibitors can collect an entry form Explore Beechworth Visitor Information Centre or Beechworth NewsXpress or download it in PDF version. Exhibits are to be delivered to Beechworth Town Hall on Friday, March 29, between 8:30 and 10:00am, together with a completed entry form and a gold coin donation.

‘Beechworth bloom autumn’ will open at 12:00pm and run until 4:00pm on March 29, and from 10:00am to 4:00pm on March 30 and 31.

The flower show will also be set within Nat├╝rlich, an exhibition of Arts Council member-artists’ works inspired by nature and curated by vice-president Daren John Pope. Nat├╝rlich opens at 6:00pm on March 27 and runs 10:00am-4:00pm March 28-31.
