‘I am so excited to be back for the second year to judge the Most Appropriately Dressed competition at Balmoral Show! We saw some amazing style at last year’s Show from Angela’s handmade stunning headpiece to the very dapper father and son duo in their flat caps! I can’t wait to see what style this year will bring!’
