As well as the usual array of garden and floral displays, food stalls and crafts from all over the country, this year’s Shrewsbury Flower Show will feature Scouting for Girls who scored a huge hit with ‘She’s So Lovely’. The band will perform on Saturday night. Also appearing are the Imps motorcycle display team, who will appear on both days of the August event, and Masterchef star John Torode.
Richard Whittingham, chair of the Shropshire Horticultural Society, says, “Shrewsbury Flower Show is a major event on the calendar and one people from far and wide look forward to attending every year. It’s quite a challenge each year to organise and ensure it runs smoothly for our thousands of visitors to enjoy the experience. But we have a dedicated team of volunteers committed to the task and although it only comes around annually, we are working very hard behind the scenes all year round.”
Tickets are now on sale with early-bird offers available until Monday 22 April; call 01743 234050 or visit shrewsburyflowershow.org.uk.
