THE Hamilton Agricultural Show is now only two months away. Last year the Hall of Home Industry made an appearance in the form of an exhibition from very talented locals after being absent due to COVID-19.
The catalogue for this year’s Hall of Home Industry is available for anyone interested in taking part. There are 13 categories ranging from the traditional quilts, knitting, needlework, teddies and dolls, to photography, floral arts, pot plants and lacework. “We have also included a section for people with disabilities,” spokesperson Yvonne Miller said.
“As normal the schools within our area have been invited to participate, with a prize going to the overall best exhibit by a school,” Yvonne said. An invitation to participate has been extended to the West Coast schools and communities and we look forward to seeing their work,” she said.
To view the entire selection of catehories it’s as easy as sending an email to Yvonne Miller via firstname.lastname@example.org.
A large amount of work has been completed by the show committee members to improve the old Hall of Home Industry and it is hoped a new hall will be built by next year and this is intended to be available to used by the community for other events.
“The future of the Hall of Home Industry relies on everyone – those who wish to exhibit their work and those who come along to view it. We look forward to a better and bigger Hall of Home Industry in the years to come,” Yvonne said.
To be held on Saturday, March 4, the Hamilton Agricultural Show is a traditional grassroots show located in the heart of Tasmania. Whether you’re a stallholder, competitor or a spectator, Hamilton Show offers a great family day out with something for everyone. See the website for more information.
