We are inviting you to join us at the Arley Garden Festival, which this year will be celebrating its 25th year! The Festival, which regularly attracts 6,000 visitors, has become one of the highlights of the horticultural year in the North West and follows the Cheshire Show. This year Tom Stuart Smith, RHS Award winning Landscape designer will be at the show on Saturday 22nd June.

Once again there will be 15 specialist plant nurseries being judged in the Floral Marquee and a wide variety of plant nurseries on the show ground as well as Garden tours throughout the day lead by Lord Ashbrook and Gordon Baillie our Head Gardener, there will also be a Gardening Question Time session on both days with Gordon Baillie our Head Gardener and Lord Ashbrook who will be talking about the history of the Arley gardens.

There will be garden accessories and Creative Crafts will host have a superb marquee, food traders in our historic Cruck Barn and down to the hall include cheese, pies and pastries, icecream, cakes, scotch eggs, cider, sweets and more as well as ‘Arley Bakes’ cooking demonstrations as well as delicious catering outlets. There will be a brass band playing in the afternoon in the east garden by the hall, an area not normally open to the public and a jazz band playing around the showground during the morning. Street Jazz will entertain you with foot tapping music in the stable yard.

In the Countryside Marquee visitors will be able to enjoy Stick Making, Coppice Fencing and Dry Stone Wall and willow weaving demonstrations. Classic cars will be infront of the Hall.

The Schools Garden Challenge will be on the main showground with local schools creating and planting wonderful flowerbeds which will be judged on the Saturday morning with a public vote taking place over the weekend, enabling all visitors to vote for their favourite flowerbed. This year we are delighted that The Little Welly Obstacle Course & Festival are sponsoring the Schools Garden Challenge and awarding the winning school free tickets for a day at The Little Welly Obstacle Course & Festival (up to 30 children) on either Saturday 29th or Sunday 30th June (T & C’s apply).
