Renowned as the largest free horticultural show of its kind in the North West, the show, now in its 19th year, attracts thousands of visitors from across the region and is popular with gardeners and families.
At the heart of the show, as always, will be the giant floral marquee. As always, there will be more than 100 classes to enter – so whether you’re an expert gardener or an enthusiastic novice, there’s always something to suit you.
Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, visitors this year will enjoy lots of colourful décor throughout Court Hey Park and even a couple of special classes including a vase of Summer of Love flowers!
All of the usual activities, attractions and entertainment will return for the show, including the craft marquee, live music inspired by Sgt Peppers’ Lonely Heart Club band, the farmers market, circus skills, creative arts workshops, health and wellbeing zone and lots of trade stands. There’ll be more information to come about other entertainment at the show, so keep an eye on the
Knowsley Flower Show website at www.knowsleyflowershow.com and make sure you like the show on Facebook for all the latest news.
As well as the Flower Show on Sunday 6 August, there will also be the Feelgood Festival taking place on the same site the previous day, Saturday 5 August, with a similar theme.
If you would like to be part of either Knowsley Flower Show or Feelgood Festival, and require stallholder or sponsorship information, please get in contact with Carla Simkin 0151 443 5353.
Please note that the Flower Show and Feelgood Festival are not affected by the closure of the National Wildflower Centre, and will take place as usual in Court Hey Park.
So save the date and get ready for a summer of love in Knowsley!
A very warm welcome to all our exhibitors in this, the 19th year of the Knowsley Flower Show. Without the support of our loyal exhibitors the wonderful displays of flowers and vegetables would not be there for visitors to admire, and wish that they could achieve that standard of excellence.
This year's Knowsley Flower Show will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love - 1967, a year
which saw some of the biggest cultural moments of a generation and a moment when the avant-garde forced its way into the mainstream.
Liverpool played a big part in this, this was the year that Sgt Pepper was released, The Mersey Sound was published and the Metropolitan Cathedral was opened.
Visitors will see lots of colourful "Summer of Love" décor throughout Court Hey Park as we also celebrate our 19th year, so keep a look out for further information.
As well as our regular exhibitors we welcome new ones, and we have Novice classes where they can compete knowing that they can ask for help and advice. Vases for growers, and plates for vegetables are provided for the Novice Section. If you would like more information then please get in touch with me, my contact details are below.
Good luck to all and good gardening.
We are delighted that the Knowsley Feelgood Festival will take place the day before our show on Saturday 5th August from 1-5pm on the Gladstone feld of Court Hey so we look forward to also welcoming families to what promises to be an exciting event!
Over 23,000 people enjoyed a great day out at the Knowsley Flower Show in Huyton on Sunday.
