Win tickets to Southport Flower Show
This year’s Southport Flower Show, taking place in just a few weeks time (16-19 August 2012) has more on offer than ever before.
Aside from the fantastic gardening attractions and stunning floral arrangements, this year’s show will boast the first year of the North West Food Festival, complete with a host of well-known celebrity chefs. There’s also the launch of the North West Book Festival, featuring authors from all genres.
Each day there’s something new happening, from talks and lectures, to cookery presentations in the kitchen, with experts on hand to answer your questions.
Star of Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Simon Rimmer, has this year been announced as a patron of The Southport Flower Show, and will commence in his role, by supporting the launch of the first North West Food Festival.
The show has also confirmed that gardening experts Christine Walkden and Alys Fowler will be attending, along with Southport Flower Show’s patrons Sir Roddy Llewellyn, Professor David Bellamy OBE and Professor Stefan Buczacki - all on hand to offer tips and guidance.
There’s plenty on the bill to keep all the family entertained over the four days. For something dramatic, the main arena’s headline acts include jousting medieval knights and free flying birds of prey. And the drama is balanced by the charm of dog displays, featuring dogs of all shapes and sizes, including rescue dogs.
The bandstand line up will bring music to your ears, with the Morecambe Brass Band, the Fisherman’s Friend Jazz Band, the Biddulph Male Voice Choir and performances from the Southport Youth Drama Academy, to name a few.
The Guide To Gay Gardening has three pairs of tickets to the Southport Flower Show to give away (worth £32 a pair). Simply comment on this post (make sure you leave your email) and on Monday 13th the three winners will be announced.
