Welcome to the Knowsley Flower Show website, we hope you enjoy visiting the site and that you find the information that you require.
Thousands of visitors enjoyed an unforgettable summer weekend in Knowsley turning out to enjoy the good weather at the popular Knowsley Flower Show as well as new event the Knowsley Feelgood Festival.
The Feelgood Festival, on Saturday, August 8 at Court Hey Park, Huyton, was a chance for people to try out hobbies and activities designed to make them feel good, reduce stress and improve their sense of health and wellbeing.
Visitors to Court Hey Park enjoyed theatre performances, musicians, storytelling and comedy workshops. There was also the chance to try traditional hobbies and games such as knitting and egg and spoon races!
The first event of its kind in Knowsley, it was attended by around 3,000 people, with feedback from visitors being extremely positive.
The Flower Show, which took place across both Court Hey Park and the National Wildflower Centre, offered a packed day of family entertainment and an exceptionally high standard of entries exhibited in the showpiece Floral Marquee.
Foodies had plenty to choose from at the show’s biggest ever farmer’s market, there were bargains to be had for the green fingered visitors at the plant stalls, and the craft marquee was bursting with handcrafted items and gifts.
This year the show hosted its largest ever dance showcase which proved extremely popular, as did the St John’s Ambulance First Aid Challenge and the Army Reserves stand. All in all more than 23,000 people enjoyed the day.
Cllr Eddie Connor, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: “It was lovely to once again see so many people coming out to enjoy themselves in Knowsley, having a great weekend and taking part in both the Flower Show and the Feelgood Festival.
“The Flower Show is very much an established favourite in our events calendar but it was also good to do something slightly different this year with the Feelgood Festival. It’s great that so many people came along to find out what it was all about and that visitors of all ages got stuck in trying the different activities on offer on the day.”
Over 23,000 people enjoyed a great day out at the Knowsley Flower Show in Huyton on Sunday.
