It has been revealed that the annual Blenheim Palace Flower Show will return to the Oxfordshire World Heritage Site from 21st-23rd June, 2019.

Now in its seventh year, the three day show celebrates the best of gardening, home and lifestyle.

Visitors to the event can also expect garden talks with experts and enthusiasts, food and drink, an outdoor plant village and live entertainment throughout the weekend.

The horticultural show will house over 300 exhibitors on the South Lawn of the Palace grounds.

The shopping village will feature a variety of trade stands, selling everything from garden gazebos to greenhouses, gardening sundries, and more. The Home and Country Living Pavilion will contain original handmade giftware, jewellery and luxury goods.

Matthew Upson, show director and managing director of Aztec Events, said: “Blenheim Palace Flower Show has really established itself as one of the great summer occasions and there couldn’t be a finer setting for a flower show than the beautiful landscape of Blenheim Palace. 

“Last year’s event was opened by BBC Gardener’s World presenter Carol Klein, and previous guests have included gardening legend Alan Titchmarsh, Sir Ian McKellen and Mary Berry. The show attracts tens of thousands of visitors of all ages and appealing to both experienced and novice gardeners.”

Blenheim Palace is the home of the 12th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, as well as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. The palace hosts a wealth of events, themed tours and exhibitions throughout the year.
