The Lee Flower Show

The Lee Flower Show was originally introduced to the village by Arthur Liberty in 1892. Over a hundred and twenty-five years later, the Show is still held annually in mid-July at The Lee Manor Park and is as popular as ever, attracting entries and visitors from all across the Parish and from neighbouring villages.

There are now over a hundred exhibiting classes at the Show, including arts, handicraft, cookery and photography, as well as the traditional flower, fruit and vegetable classes. Children and adult races are also a link with the original show

Recent shows have also included a dog show, children’s entertainment, a scarecrow competition and a wide range of exhibitions and stands. Music was provided by the Amersham Band. 

Again in good show tradition, the day ends with The Lee Flower Show dance.
