RHS Malvern will bloom again in 2021
Following the sell-out success of the socially distanced, outdoor Plant Market and Garden Fair in September, the Three Counties are delighted to announce the return of the RHS Malvern Spring Festival next year.
The show will open on 5th May 2021 and is set for five days, (5th to 9th May) with reduced visitor numbers and morning or afternoon ticket options. The revised measures will ensure plenty of space for visitors to relax and enjoy the show gardens, specialist plant nurseries and alfresco eateries.
The traditional Floral Marquee will be reimagined with the open-air Specialist Nurseries Arena, where visitors will have space and time to select from a wide range of the finest plants, from over 70 RHS-award-winning nurseries and national collection holders.
The showground is set against the stunning backdrop of the Malvern Hills and its 90 acres offers the perfect location for designers to express their talents and create a collection of exciting show gardens. The popular shipping container gardens will be returning for 2021 to provide a range of innovative design ideas and if you are in need of refreshment during your visit, there will be a spacious alfresco dining area.
There will be lively talks and demonstrations each day, and plenty of inspiration among the lifestyle and gardenalia stands.
Commenting, Head of Shows, Di Walton said: “We were absolutely thrilled to be announcing the return of RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May 2021, after the disappointment we all felt for our visitors after the Covid cancellation last year. The highly successful Malvern Plant and Garden Fair we held in September 2020, enabled us explore how best to create a spacious and exciting event that allows for social distancing and compliance with all current safety measures, while still offering a fabulously exciting gardening event. We are really looking forward to welcoming our visitors and exhibitors back in May.”
Three Counties has been awarded the VisitEngland ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry charter mark – this verifies that the Showground meets the Government’s public health guidance on Covid-19. There will also be spacious parking allocations to allow for social distancing, new safety information signage and hand sanitiser stations situated throughout the showground.
Please note that tickets are advanced only and numbers will be restricted, so Three Counties are advising early booking to avoid disappointment. Tickets go on sale 30th October. For further information please visit: https://www.threecounties.co.uk/whats-on
It certainly is uplifting to be able to look forward to a flower show once again for 2021 and we wish the organisers at Three Counties every success in their planning in the run-up to Spring.
