Friends need help to put on the Great Middleton Park Show

This year the Friends of Middleton Park are looking for new volunteers to join our Show Committee to help organise one of our biggest events of the year, The Great Middleton Park Show.

The Show includes a craft, flower and produce competition, market and food stalls, an entertainment arena with DJ compare, children’s games, music by local bands, and a delicious home-made cake stall. And much more still to be agreed! All this is due to take place on Sunday 10 September 2023. But we need your help.

Volunteers joining the Show committee will attend regular meetings leading up to the event, where we discuss what needs doing and share the work out.

Volunteers can take on as much or as little as they want. We are a friendly group and will provide lots of support. There is tea and cake at each meeting too!

Organisational tasks include managing bookings from market and food stall holders, registration of entrants to the craft, flower and produce competition, contacting the groups and individuals providing entertainment, planning the site layout, promotion of the Show through advertising and posters, and ensuring health and safety guidelines are followed.

No experience is needed. Just enthusiasm and a bit of free time!

If you are interested, please contact us using the Friends of Middleton Park Facebook page, by email at or phone Frances Jones on 01924 824488.
