Frome Cheese Show News

FROME’S BIGGEST annual event needs your help as the organisation behind it prepares to mark its 150th anniversary.

Frome & District Agricultural Society was founded in 1861 and, with the history of more than 130 shows to draw on, it’s to stage an exhibition in the town’s museum – and that’s where you come in.

Press officer and show archivist Peter Corbett explains.

“We already have a wealth of information, a great selection of photographs and show catalogues, class certificates and many small items which people would normally throw away such as admission tickets, but there are still plenty of gaps we would very much like to fill. We have, for instance, very little from the years before and after World War II.

“If anyone has any photographs – they don’t need to be old, pictures from the sixties, seventies or even the eighties could be very useful – or anything at all we can borrow which will add to the story of this unique event would be gratefully received.

“And,” he added, “I promise we will take great care of everything and return it safely!”

The exhibition is scheduled to run at Frome Museum for the month of August next year. It will then move to the West Woodlands Showground where it will feature at the 2011 show.
