One of the show’s highlights is the spectacular Grand Floral Marquee. It’s a treasure trove of quality plants and flowers, trees and shrubs, bonsai, cacti, vegetables and herbs. Visit the Grand Floral Marquee to look, see and smell not only superior quality specimens, but also some of the more unusual plant varieties before you buy and, just importantly, get on the spot advice from the people who actually grew the plants.
BEES AND HONEY
Prepare to be bee-wildered by the bee-keepers in our Honey Marquee, who will give you a live demonstration of the honeybees performing their amazing “Waggle Dance”.
Once you have watched the curious work done by these amazing creatures, treat yourself to their spoils! With a selection of honey and beeswax on sale from local bee-keepers, you will be able to sample and take home their gorgeous preserves.
Arguably the most popular attraction at the show, our visitors make a point to visit the spectacular Show Gardens.
Led by the show theme each year, these incredible gardens are constructed by Garden Designers and Landscapers in just under two weeks. Inspired by the show’s annual theme, this year our exhibitors go head-to-head to create and impress our judges.
Whether you are looking for inspiration, ideas or the professionals who will do the right job – you will leave our breath-taking Show Gardens excited to transform your own.
Take a seat in the cookery theatre and enjoy some of the nation’s most loved chefs sharing their tips while they cook – live!
Once you’ve got your inspiration, head to the bustling food marquee where you can sample and buy produce from over 50 independent gourmet producers.
Brian Mellor from Harthill Cookery School will be providing plenty of BBQ inspiration with live cookery demonstrations across the weekend. Visitors can catch all of the alfresco action next to the Cookery Theatre.
