A very warm welcome to all our exhibitors in this, the 19th year of the Knowsley Flower Show. Without the support of our loyal exhibitors the wonderful displays of flowers and vegetables would not be there for visitors to admire, and wish that they could achieve that standard of excellence.

This year's Knowsley Flower Show will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love - 1967, a year
which saw some of the biggest cultural moments of a generation and a moment when the avant-garde forced its way into the mainstream.

Liverpool played a big part in this, this was the year that Sgt Pepper was released, The Mersey Sound was published and the Metropolitan Cathedral was opened.
Visitors will see lots of colourful "Summer of Love" décor throughout Court Hey Park as we also celebrate our 19th year, so keep a look out for further information.

As well as our regular exhibitors we welcome new ones, and we have Novice classes where they can compete knowing that they can ask for help and advice. Vases for growers, and plates for vegetables are provided for the Novice Section. If you would like more information then please get in touch with me, my contact details are below.

Good luck to all and good gardening.


We are delighted that the Knowsley Feelgood Festival will take place the day before our show on Saturday 5th August from 1-5pm on the Gladstone feld of Court Hey so we look forward to also welcoming families to what promises to be an exciting event!

Over 23,000 people enjoyed a great day out at the Knowsley Flower Show in Huyton on Sunday.

The spirit of the Summer of Love will be captured this summer in two fantastic, free family events at Court Hey Park in Huyton, Knowsley.

Both the Knowsley Flower Show and Feelgood Festival will be harking back to the Summer of ’67 with a packed schedule of flower power inspired fun and entertainment. Taking place on the weekend of 5 and 6 August, visitors can expect the usual blend of good food, music, activities and entertainment at both events.

This year’s Feelgood Festival, on Saturday, 5 August from 1-5pm, is packed with activities, performances and experiences to help improve your health and wellbeing. It’s a chance to try mindful yoga, various fitness and sporting activities with Volair and complementary therapies. You can join in with drawing and painting classes or a ‘Feeling Funny’ workshop with the Comedy Trust, and browse a selection of wellbeing craft stalls.

Lush Spa Liverpool will be offering complementary taster treatments and Boots pharmacy will offer health advice and summer makeovers. Children will love entertainment from Zippie and the Bubble Man!

In the main arena there’ll be entertainment from Jan Williams Dance School, EnChord singers and Charlie Reader singing summer hits from the last 50 decades, including the Beatles. Plus you can browse the stalls at the Geraud Farmer’s Market in the clearing.

Then, on Sunday 6 August, you can expect even more flower power at the Knowsley Flower Show from 11am until 5pm. As usual, at the show’s heart will be the breathtaking floral marquee, bursting with potentially prize-winning fruit, vegetables and flowers. Get growing and you could be entering your pride and joy into one of the 100 categories, suitable for both novices and experienced growers alike. Download the schedule of classes now at www.knowsleyflowershow.com and view the special classes themed around 50 Summers of Love.

Certainly, keen gardeners will love the many plant and seed stalls offering great value, and the chance to get expert tips at the Gardener’s Question Time event.

As usual there will also be the rich programme of family entertainment, including dog displays in the main arena, Geraud’s large farmers’ market, circus skills, glitter faces and a health and wellbeing zone plus lots of trade stands.

MATE Productions will be there on the day with free half hour sessions of pop-up Romeo and Juliet. Music will be provided by some fantastic live musicians from En Chord performing at ‘Little Glasto’, elsewhere you’ll find the BoogieWondervan playing hits from the last 50 summers.

There’ll also be a Health and Wellbeing Zone with plants, honey sellers and the chance to make your own bat and bee boxes.

At both events, children are invited to dress up in 60s or 70s fashion and join in the Summer of Love fancy dress parade around the site at 1pm to get the event off to a fantastic start – and there’ll be great prizes on offer for the best costumes. Register now through Knowsley’s Children’s Centres or call 0151 443 5749 for an entry form.

Both events are completely free, and are part of a wider programme of more than 60 Summer of Love events taking place across the City Region this summer. You can find out more about the other events at https://www.cultureliverpool.co.uk/summer-of-love/. .

As well as our regular exhibitors we welcome new ones, and we have Novice classes where they can compete knowing that they can ask for help and advice.
