About Knowsley Flower Show 2019
The Knowsley Flower Show, the largest free horticultural show in the North West, will return to Court Hey Park in Huyton this summer. It’s a particularly special show this year as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and support the Year of the Environment.
With more than 100 classes you can enter, in categories including general cut flowers, pot plants, vegetables, crafts, as well as categories just for novices and young people – you can feel comfortable whatever your experience or ability. New for 2019 is a Floral Art class “to depict the moon landing” and some new craft categories including “home made cake decorated to represent the 50th anniversary of moon landing” and “constructed a knitted or crocheted vegetable”!
If growing isn’t for you, you can still enjoy a great day out for all of the family; expect the usual attractions from previous years including live music, crafts, a farmers market, a multicultural community zone, face painting, fair rides and much more. The Merseyside Fun Dog Show will be located on the Pavilion again so you can bring your dog along to join in the fun! Your best friend can get involved in a host of activities planned especially for them including ‘retrieve the sausage’ and ‘the waggulator’! Also, children can enjoy Activity for All’s giant military inflatable, have a go at giant darts and enjoy the amazing zorb balls!
And, green fingered or not, everyone will be wowed by the large floral marquee at the heart of the show, which will showcase more than 400 beautiful exhibits, bursting with colour and creativity.
