With the sad news about the cancellation of the Tamworth Annual Show, set to be held in September, the team at 2TM and 92.9FM have decided that the town won't have to miss out—bringing the 2020 Tamworth Virtual Show online.
Annual Agricultural Shows are extremely important events, especially in regional towns as they allow the wider community to connect with each other through sporting events, arts and crafts and socially. They also allow farmers to showcase their stock and see what other farmers have on offer to broaden their own breeding programs.
The 2020 Tamworth Virtual Show will allow people to enter 5 categories, with fantastic prizes on offer as well as a specially made show ribbon. Categories are Photography, Artworks, Literature, Pets and Creation. The sub-categories are further broken down, and four of the sub-categories are an under 18’s section.
General Manager, Nikki Kenwrick said,
"We are excited to celebrate with our listeners a small representation of what the Agricultural show would normally bring to town.
People work all year on submissions to enter the annual show, and at least this way, they can still participate in a virtual way.
With the region still in drought, and the recent bush fires in the area, it’s important for people to have something to look forward to."
The 2020 Tamworth Virtual Show kicked off this morning, and we will be accepting entries via photos until 28th August 2020.
Winners will be notified on September 3rd, which would have been the first day of the Tamworth Annual show.
