CANCELLED - Taunton Flower Show

Description

Taunton Flower Show is held in Vivary Park in Taunton. The centre piece of the show are the large competitive classes and floral classes marquees. The competitive classes are open to all and consist of approximately 250 different classes for amateur gardeners, crafters, floral artists and children. The floral marquee features traders who mount show displays of their flowers and plants. Around the marquees are a wide range of horticultural traders. The centre of the park is an arena where events such as marching bands, dog displays, dramatic motor bike events etc take place. The show also features other smaller marquees - we have a bees and honey show and a wine show. The show also has a children's zone where our younger visitors can be entertained.

For the last few years we have encouraged professional garden designers to build show-gardens where you can be inspired.

Shows were first held in 1831, and in 1851 a show was held in the grounds of a Mr Kinglake of Taunton and led, in the course of time, to the establishment of Vivary Park at top of the towns High Street. The Edwardian Park was fully restored in 2001 and continues to provide a magnificent backdrop to what the media rather grandly dubbed The Chelsea of the West a few years ago.

In some early years the show was run more than once a year, and various years missed out at different points, for example because of war years.

Every year's show still has horticulture at its heart although in recognition of the need to attract a new generation of green-fingered enthusiasts sees the continued development of of gardening events as well as floral and craft displays.
