www.askriggshow2021.weebly.com www.askriggshow20Welcome to the 2021 Askrigg and District Produce Show website. We were really hoping that this year we would be back to ‘business as usual’ and planning for a return to the village hall. We have taken the decision, however, that we cannot risk planning for a live show this year as there is no certainty as to where we will be by show day.
Looking on the bright side, we were completely overwhelmed by the response to our on-line show in 2020. It was so lovely to get exhibits from many new entrants and to feel part of the revolution in people returning to creative pastimes. It was really heart-warming to see the quality and skilfulness of the many wonderful entries. I think our contributors found it much easier to be able to send in their exhibits in a more relaxed pace than having to produce everything on show day.
We are hoping for an equally high volume and quality of entries this year. We will have this year’s schedule ready soon and we will be posting regular information on how to enter with handy hints and tips on getting the most out of your prize exhibit. Anyone needing help with entering will be able to contact our expert panel for advice and practical help, so don’t be put off if you aren’t familiar with the on-line world.
We had some very pleasing reaction from the media and even from our very own MP Rishi Sunak, who was extremely complementary about our efforts to continue with the show. We will be asking for his support and help promoting the show again this year – I don’t think he’ll be very busy, after all. Thank you for supporting our lovely show. We look forward to another great year.
