Yet another bumper year for the show, with a record 617 exhibits and hundreds of visitors flooding into the Corn Exchange in the afternoon. Here are all the organisers and helpers at 1.00pm, judging completed and ready for the Mayor to open the show to the public. There were heaps of positive comments as well as loads of suggestions for how to make next year's show even better.

This year's theme was our show one hundred years ago. Held in Warner's Park on Thursday 31 July 1913, it was a last day of innocence. In less than one year the first steps towards the nightmare of World War 1 would be taken. Not only would the world change forever and much of the innocence of that July day be gone forever, but some participants of the 1913 show would be directly affected. To read more on that theme, with the stories of some of the participants, click Our Show 100yrs Ago.
