The show is organised by the Nunney & District Flower Show Committee, who very much hope that participants from both inside and outside Nunney will help keep this rural tradition alive by taking part.

There are no fewer than 154 different categories this year, ranging from vegetables and pot plants to handicraft and bakery. Children under the age of 16 can submit entries in 28 categories, including a potato animal (3 years and under), decorated cup cakes, poems, drawings and computer-generated posters.

There are many trophies available for the best entries in various categories. Men can receive the Stan Smith Trophy for the best lemon drizzle cake, the judges can also award cups, salvers and trophies for the best flower arrangements, vegetables and many more categories. Rosettes will be awarded for outstanding exhibits in all sections.
