THE GARDEN SHOW AT STANSTED PARK

7 - 9 June 2019

Join us for the 25th Garden Show at Stansted Park on 7 – 9 June 2019. The perfect event to find all you need to make your garden (and home!) grow. A great opportunity to explore what’s on the doorstep; source new talent, designers and artisans. Browse affordable and handpicked stands showcasing the latest specialist plants, garden and home accessories, art, design, sculpture, fashion, gifts and then treat your taste buds to tempting foods and wines.

It’s also a good opportunity to learn about gardening - meet the Garden Show team and pick up top tips from horticultural experts to solve those frustrating problems – they know what they are doing. As ever the specialist plantsmen will bring their knowledge and an abundance of beautiful plants and, along with ‘The Gardening Doctors Val & Steve Bradley, they will be working hard to solve any gardening dilemmas.  A great chance to get your garden into shape and with environmentalist, Jules and Lance on hand again, ‘Always Room To Grow’ you can be sure that any garden will benefit from their advice and garden ailments will be resolved in as friendly a way as possible!  

By popular request the daily ‘Talks & Chats’ on the environment, garden & country matters return for a second year. On Friday: Derry Watkins ‘Late Summer Colour’. Saturday:  ‘Behind The Scenes At Stansted Park’. Sunday: Ben Cross ‘British Flowers Rock’. We welcome back for his 7th Show, Ray Hunt who with his unique flair, will be building a garden in aid of CancerWise. The Flower Festival in the Chapel ‘My Hobby’ will wow with the arrangements of blooms.

Don’t forget... it’s not all about gardening… with ongoing and varied artisan demonstrations to persuade you to be creative when you get home! The busy ‘Studio Shop Marquee’ and The Open Studio workshops, which proved so popular, will return with talented artists and artisans ready and willing to share their expertise; jewellery design, water colour painting, photography, felt making, forging, pottery and so many more.

There is plenty to engage your children & the whole family: watch children play in the beautiful parklands and they can get crafting and learn to juggle, have their faces painted, get lost in the maze, ride the model railway or play in the fairground. Everyone can have a go at the Target Zone Archery range. Enjoy Stansted’s lovely parklands, explore the House, Chapel and arboretum or watch Huxley Birds of Prey soar through the skies.

We have grown over the years but are happy that the original concept hasn’t changed – giving visitors the opportunity to source an innovative range of items for the house, garden & themselves. Over 350 stands, picked for their quality and difference, bursting with stylish accessories, art and design and enticing artisan foods and wines. A chance to rejuvenate your home and make your life feel much better!

Come to the garden party… revitalise your garden and life and yourself.
