- Challenge is open to members from other regions as the entries over the past few years have been low. (judging will be on Thursday 24th and winner will be notified by telephone.) Download the challenge entry form   where you will find details of payment and where to send it.

Entering your challenge from another region?  Please download and complete this entry form  and send/email it to Jan Allston along with payment (details on form). If you wish to use PayPal, email Jan for an invoice.

- Birds of prey display & guitar playing

- Refreshments

The deadline for entry forms has been extended to the 31st July, however if you could send in your entry forms as soon as possible for both the challenge and general exhibition quilts so that planning can start for the marquee, it would be very much appreciated.   

Free car park for visitors opposite the Castle with disabled parking just outside the gatehouse.  Or, why not book a coach to take your local quilt group for an exciting day out? Please contact the castle in advance for directions to the coach park.
