THE 70th annual Hatton Show take place on September 8 – but before that the show committee is organising a “gin festival” to raise funds to support the event.
The “Gin Etcetera” festival will be the Milner Institute, Moore on Friday, July 13, starting at 7.30pm when a range of drinks and nibbles will be on offer.
Admission is £12.50 – but that includes five sample drinks and the nibbles.
Hatton Show has existed since the 1890s and has only “missed” during the two world wars and during a foot and mouth crisis.
There are categories for horticulture, domestic, floral art, photography, handicrafts, juniors, etc.
Entries for the show close on September 1 and schedules are available from committee members or by phoning the show secretary, Kate Fitch, on 01925 740515.
The show takes place at Daresbury, opposite All Saints Church.
