Cornwall Garden Society Spring Flower Show
Boconnoc near Liskeard 7/8th April 2018
The CGS Spring Flower Show is firmly established as one of the most widely respected flower shows in the UK. It’s also known as one of the most friendly and inclusive shows and as such we attract exhibitors and visitors from all over the country.
Following the outstanding success of the 2017 show we are looking to make 2018 even more vibrant for our visitors.
As most will know our trade focus has always been to attract top quality nurserywomen and men (many of whom are based in the south-west), supported by other horticultural traders offering high quality products. In 2018 we will be providing MORE INDOOR SPACE FOR NURSERIES (using the non-food end of the Long Marquee) to provide a wider range of attractions.
New for 2018 is an ADDITIONAL MARQUEE which will be home to a range of interesting and high quality artisans/crafts. We believe this new aspect to the show, supported by appropriate marketing, will give the show an even wider audience appeal and increase visitor numbers over the two days of the show weekend.
Our Food from Cornwall area will be as “delicious” as always. There will be the usual range of food outlets around the site.
The new CGS Spring Flower Show website will be more comprehensive for 2018 and will include a full list of exhibitors, published well ahead of show time. It will also include an “exhibitors’ area”, where you can download forms and up to date information online including the Coach Booking Form. This will be available in early October.
For further information please contact Peter Gilmore, Show Director on 07476103670 or email@example.com
We are seeking new nurseries for 2018 to contribute to the best and probably the largest non RHS horticultural show in the country. For Trade enquiries, please contact Sue Newton, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our members have some truly beautiful and interesting gardens. Take a look to see some of the wonderful things growing.
You can take out CGS membership as an individual or as a family and there are lots of benefits.
