At this family friendly festival you will find much to keep everyone entertained and inspired. For enthusiastic gardeners, the impressive floral marquee full of colour and scents will feed your creative side and the numerous stalls selling plants will get your green fingers itching to get into those gardening gloves! There is plenty more to keep you smiling - crafts of great variety, skill and ingenuity, toys and hobbies including many nostalgic exhibits, art, antiques and collectables. A number of craftsmen will be demonstrating their skills, many of them traditional, throughout the day and of course the day would not be complete without a visit to the mouth-watering food marquee!

The main arena is host to an exciting programme of events guaranteed to thrill and entertain.  Children are well looked after too with lots of activities (and ice cream of course!) to make their day. So with everyone happy, you can rest and enjoy live music while you soak in the atmosphere of this great annual show.
