Knowsley Flower Show is celebrating its 19th year and is the largest free horticultural Show in the North West, attracting up to 22,000 people.
This year's show is expected to be bigger and better than ever. If you've never visited the show before you will be in for a pleasant surprise.
The show is set in the grounds of Court Hey Park - home of National Wildflower Centre and former residence of the late William Gladstone.
As well as a giant floral marquee - which is always a blaze of colour and which houses over 400 exhibits - there is a fantastic array of entertainment and attractions on offer, including falconry displays, guided walks, a woodworker, craft demonstrations, dog obedience, arts workshops and circus skills. A large craft marquee will feature in the show along with many trade stands ranging from garden centres to conservatories. There is a 'gardener's question time' where you can seek gardening tips, and a large farmers' market... in a nutshell a great day out for all the family.
This show is a great example of community partnership with great links and expertise offered by five of the borough's horticultural and allotments societies/community groups - Roby and Whiston Horticultural Societies and Bowring Park and Cuper Crescent Allotments and Friends of Court Hey Park.
So put the date in your diary and join in on a fun-packed day for all the family or why not enter the show yourself - there are special novice classes and help is at hand by contacting our Show Secretary, Christine Yates on 0151 480 8666 or calling Cultur Development & Events Service on 0151 443 5619.
