Scoriton Country Show & Sports 2020

An Event to Remember


Update and Coronavirus

A message from Scoriton Country Show Committee

Hello all our friends and loved ones out there somewhere!

The presence of Coronavirus in Devon means that life will certainly not have been normal over the bank holiday and this is yet another message, that signals a change in our usual pattern of life.

We very much want to have a great show again this year, and for you all to be able to brag about the size of your parsnips or how fast you ran the cross country! We met earlier than ever this year to get ahead with our usual list of classes, so that you could know better what to grow, what to make, as well as which muscles to stretch… 

Full planning for us, you will understand, is impossible right now. We are going to hold off making any final decision on whether to go ahead this year until the end of June. (After that date we would usually start to incur significant costs, which would be money wasted should we not be able to go ahead in August). By that time we might also have a better understanding from the government about what we can or cannot do.

Staying optimistic, we have agreed to publish the list of classes that involve sowing and growing. Please see this below. You will also find this year’s craft entries, so in a quiet time for many, you may feel like making something! (A very long scarf perhaps?) As for food and home-made produce classes, we will evaluate things at June end before we publish these. 

These pages will be revised on a regular basis with up-to-date information and you will be able to connect via our Facebook page too. We will also let you know about sports events and stalls as we know more. 

Please note: There will be no paper schedule (programme of events) printed and circulated this year. If you know anyone who is a regular exhibitor who is not online or on social media, then please send a message to: 

We will aim to get the information to them via carrier pigeon (or some other way)!

In the meantime… Stay well and stay safe and protect our fantastic NHS!

PS If anyone has any well-trained pigeons please get in touch…
