Following a successful year at its new venue, the 2022 flower show will return to Newby Hall & Gardens near Ripon this September.
Taking place on 16th-18th September, Harrogate Autumn Flower Show offers ‘two in one’ with admission to the award-winning gardens included in the ticket price to the event.
This year’s show will feature traditional favourites including the world-famous giant vegetable competition, live theatres and great garden advice. The impressive Grand Floral Pavilion, covering almost 43,000 square feet, will host a range of independent plant nurseries and specialist societies, showcasing Britain’s biggest display of autumn blooms.
New for 2022 is a series of floral art installations throughout the interior of the stately home. ‘Once Upon a Time’ will take visitors on a fairy-tale inspired journey through a series of ground-floor rooms, before emerging into the hall’s gardens.
Other highlights for groups
A packed programme of live talks will include grow-your-own tips and delicious dishes from top chef, Steph Moon and grow-your-own expert, Martin Walker in the Great Northern Larder theatre.
Over on the GROW! Stage, celebrity floral designer, Jonathan Moseley is set to create stunning arrangements, alongside Q&As with garden expert, Martin Fish and Yorkshire plantswoman, Sarah Hopps.
