Admiring the flowers at Knowsley Flower show 2022

More than 25,000 people visited Court Hey Park this weekend for the Knowsley Feelgood Festival and Flower Show.

On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August thousands gathered for a colourful weekend of good mood vibes, prize winning flowers, fruit and veg and lots of fun for all the family.

Over two days the festivals offered something for everyone from magnificent floral displays and live music performances to tempting food and drink, and countless fun activities for the kids, including bubble workshops, drumming workshops, circus skills and fairground rides and attractions.

Throughout the weekend visitors had the opportunity to enjoy the work of renowned international artist James Brunt who created a Land Art installation during Saturday’s Feelgood Festival for people to see and enjoy the following day at the Flower Show. Visitors also had the chance to make Wonderful Wildflowers with artist Faith Bebbington who worked with participants to create beautiful artworks out of recyclable materials, and which were displayed at the Flower Show.

More than 80 people entered the Show with over 300 exhibits in the floral marquee including fabulous giant vegetables and Richard Burniston claimed the Best Exhibit in the show with his winning cauliflower.  There were prizes for best exhibits in each section including General Cut Flowers, Pot Plants, Dahlias, Roses, Vegetables, Crafts and the Novice category.  This year’s Flower Show also had more new entries than ever before and is a number that Flower Show organisers hope to increase year on year.

With the Knowsley Flower Show unable to go ahead in person in 2021, we asked some of the show’s most successful exhibitors to show us what’s gowing in their gardens instead…
