Since 1879 Eynsford village has been running an Annual horticultural show. Initially organised by the Eynsford Horticultural Society, the shows are now run by the Eynsford Gardener's Club.

The Club has always been affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society and past presidents have included the Right Hon. Sir W. Hart Dyke.


Annual shows were held in the Cricket Meadow and a band entertained the crowds. Prizes were awarded for classes such as ‘best kept and cropped garden, usefulness to be chief merit’, ‘comb and extracted honey’ and a ‘bouquet of wild flowers and grasses’.

In terms of finances, in 1910 for example, the Society was funded largely through professional gardeners and subscribers. Funding was also obtained through gate money, stalls and adverts.
