The Maidenhead Town Show is a free to attend, not-for-profit annual 'country show in the town' in its 7th year, that brings together local people to celebrate their creativity.
It is led by Craft Coop, a CIC that supports 150 'kitchen table' crafters with advice and low-cost shared retail space. The Show developed as Craft Coop realised that there weren't very many opportunities for non-professional artists and craftspeople to share what they did.
The event has been growing since it began in 2013 with just 10 entrants in 4 classes; last year saw 300 visitors, 20 stall holders, 53 competition entries across 7 classes, 52 dog show entrants, 8 local dance, drama and music groups, and more. The Maidenhead Show has grown from several tables in the shopping centre to a multi-site event across Maidenhead.
The Town Show has been held in several different locations in the Town Centre, and in 2019 it moved to the top of the High Street, making the event safer and larger with more car-free space. While there continues to be disturbance in the Town Centre as a result of various regeneration projects, we will continue to hold the Town Show at the top of the High Street.
The Town Show is volunteer-led and brings people together to celebrate local creativity in all its forms. Every year it grows in popularity and we can't wait to make The Maidenhead Town Show 2020 the best it has ever been and attract even more people, building a sense of pride in our town.
