Cookery, Craft, Art & Photography Section

Welcome to the 2021 Emley Show Cookery, Craft, Art & Photography Web Page

Thank you for visiting our page.

Due to the current unprecedented circumstances, regrettably the 2020 show has been cancelled.  However, we still feel there is a silver lining which we are pleased to share with you. Our section categories set for the 2020 show will be rolled over to 2021.  We are very aware of the planning, preparation and time which goes into creating all your wonderful entries therefore the classes and categories will remain the same.  This will enable more time for crafting, painting, taking photos and perfecting your cookery entries.  We are also hoping this extra time will encourage everyone to enter more classes.  We look forward to seeing everyone now on Saturday, 7th August 2021 with all your wonderful entries. 

On this page you will also find all the information you will need to enter classes in any of the four sections categories.  Via this page you have links to the schedule, an online printable entry form and the section rules, all now online to easily give you all the information you need.  All you have to do is complete the entry form, include your entry fee and post to us.  Of course, if you have any questions, we are always at the end of the phone to help you.  Contact details are given in the schedule. 

We are delighted to be able to publish the updated schedule for 2021 for our sections.  We previously worked with the judges, to set the categories section for the 2020 show,  this schedule was already in the public domain and it was only fair that entrants who had already started on their exhibits for this year’s cancelled show be able to continue and thus show their exhibits at the 2021 show.   Consideration was given to the time it can take to prepare entries for the Art, Craft and Photography sections and we hoped by publishing these very early in the year it will boost interest and entry numbers.  For the cookery section it will give you time to practice and perfect those lovely cakes, scones and jams to enter (don’t forget the gin).  We have also taken into account your suggestions and by popular demand the craft section sees the return of the “knitted or crochet tea cosy displayed on a teapot” class.  This class was very popular and we are hoping to see a wonderful display again for the 2021 show.   

The ladies from the Huddersfield Embroiders Guild have very kindly agreed to provide another wonderful display for show day, following two previous successful years.  The ladies will display examples of their embroidery, textile art work and provide the opportunity to “sit and have a go”, this is especially wonderful for the younger visitors, but we are not excluding anyone who has an interest in learning new craft skills.

We look forward to seeing everyone on show day with all your wonderful crafts, photos, art work and cookery which makes up our wonderful section.  All your efforts and entries are what fills our marquee with a display which year on year is uplifting and a true sight to see.
