Blenheim Palace Flower Show

The Blenheim Palace Flower Show has announced its dates for 2018, making the event the fifth of its kind when it takes place from 22nd to 24th June next summer. 

The gardening show will return to the Oxfordshire World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace to house over 300 exhibitions located around a Grand Floral Pavilion, which will be situated on the South Lawn of the palace, which was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.

What will you see at the show?

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

Show director, Matthew Upson, 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.”

He continued: “Last year’s event was opened by gardening legend Alan Titchmarsh and previous guests have included 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.”

At the heart of the show will be the 20,000 square foot Grand Floral Pavilion featuring more than 30 floral displays and a large selection of flowers and plants from UK plantsmen.
