Chatsworth Flower Show
Day Excursion - By Coach
Price from £59.95 per person*
Departs 11th Jun 2017
Join us on a great new excursion for 2017 as one of Britain's greatest grand houses teams up with the Royal Horticultural Society to put on its very own RHS Flower Show. The theme is 'Design Revolutionaries' and says this new event is a bold and innovative departure, using the magnificent 1,000 acre Chatsworth landscape created by past design revolutionaries like Joseph Paxton and Lancelot 'Capability' Brown to showcase the leading–edge work of tomorrow's design revolutionaries.
Says Nick Mattingley, RHS Shows Director: "Our aim is to create a new show that champions the horticultural innovation of today and the future, and encourages exhibitors to be progressive and think outside the box".
There'll be gardens, features and displays from hot new designers, show gardens using colour and space in ingenious and innovative ways, specialist nurseries, a marquee reconstruction of Joseph Paxton's Great Conservatory with spectacular floral displays, and gardening tips, talks and demonstrations by the RHS experts. A 'Future Heritage' display focusses on contemporary uses of traditional skills such as dry stone walling, and a new 'Freeform' category promotes the latest ideas in sculpture. A new competition called 'Gardening in a Changing World' links with the RHS innovative science strategy and 3D models of the design entries will be on display. Even the layout is new. Instead of the simple grid system in use at other RHS shows, this one will follow the natural rises and hollows of the landscape, making the most of Chatsworth's amazing views. Specially–built bridges across the River Derwent – one in grand Palladian style with its own floral interior – will link the various parts of the show area.
