Welcome to The Ancient Society of York Florists
(a Society for the Amateur Gardener, Grower & Exhibitor
of Fruit, Flowers & Vegetables, Floral Art, Handicrafts & Baking)
we hold the record for 'worlds longest running horticultural show - established 1768'
all shows held in the Recreation Hall, The Village, Wigginton YO32 2LL.
due to the corona virus and current lockdown rules, it is with regret that we have had to cancel the April show for 2021. At present all other shows this year are planned to take place as normal.
The 2020 Schedule will be used for the 2021 shows which will take place on 17 July, 11 September & 23 October all at Wigginton Recreational Hall. Your current membership will be continued into 2021 and new membership cards will be issued along with amended schedules in January. The 2020 AGM has also been cancelled
