Birlingham Flower & Produce Show is taking place on Saturday 2nd September 2017 on the Cricket Pitch.
As in previous years we would like to offer any local traders the opportunity to have a stall either to advertise or to sell their wares. We will not be charging a stall fee but stallholders will need to provide their own table and shelter in case of bad weather. 
We are also looking for volunteers to help on the day. Support is required to take money on the gate, make and sell teas, sell raffle tickets, and set up and take down marquees and tables. If you can offer support or you would like to set up a stall please contact info@birlinghamshow.co.uk.
