NEW: The 6th Annual Rawdon Village Show!

The 6th Rawdon Village Show takes place at Rawdon Community Library on Saturday 30th June. The theme for this year’s Show is Paddington Bear (and we hear he’s particularly looking forward to all the entries in the ‘Jar of Marmalade’ section).

There are lots of Paddington themed categories for our younger entrants too – pictures to colour in, a postcard to Aunt Lucy and a Paddington pop-up Scene. So get crafting!

Rawdon Village Show aims to bring together people of all ages and showcase their abilities for all to see. Whether you love baking, sewing, knitting, writing, gardening, photography … there’s a category for you giving an opportunity to display your talents. Everyone can enter – no need to be a library member (but you’re welcome to join!)

In addition to the show entries we are aiming to have an even bigger and better Show this year bringing together many of Rawdon’s local community organisations – plus traditional children’s races, games and attractions, stalls, ‘Library Café’, music and dance performances, and once again, the Beer & Food Tent.
