Royal Adelaide Show

27th May 2022

As most of you may know, Inspirations HQ is lucky enough to be situated in the beautiful city of Adelaide, Australia. One of the features of the Adelaide calendar for the past 180 years has been the Royal Adelaide Show, an agricultural and horticultural show that has also traditionally held a fabulous needlework competition and display.

Up until 2020, the only times The Show, as it is affectionately known, wasn’t held was during the two World Wars. However, in 2020 it had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All seemed to be going well for The Show to run in 2021, but the continuing spread of the virus meant that it was cancelled three weeks before the event.

But in 2022, it is third time lucky! The Show should be back on the calendar and it is going to be bigger than ever after the forced hiatus. Everyone who is in Adelaide during September will be eagerly lining up for tickets to see all the livestock, arts, food and displays of skill and best of all, the needlework.

Entries for the competition are open right now, so if you have projects completed then don’t be shy. Get your entries in – there are a range of categories for all kinds of needlework – and let’s make this Show and its needlework display the biggest one yet.
