We’ve passed the 100 mark on exhibitors now booked for Toby’s GardenFest at Powderham Castle on 28th and 29th April with new applications still coming in daily. We are delighted that so many past exhibitors are returning to the Fest, including popular local Dawlish nursery Whetman Pinks, Chelsea award-winners Avon Bulbs, Thornhayes, Teign Trees, Urban & Rural and many more. For a full list of all the nurseries who have booked so far, take a look here.
As usual we will have exhibitors inside the beautiful rooms of the Castle and in the Artisan Marquee with popular artisans, such as Treespeake and Landlife Photography, returning for our fourth year. Plus we are delighted to welcome new artists Anne Mortimer and Karen Thomas Watercolour. Anne has lived and worked as a successful published artist in Devon for 30 years, while Karen lives in the South Hams and is featured in the March issue of Country Living magazine. See all the artisans and indoor exhibitors so far booked here – we will be adding new exhibitors to the website all the time in the run-up to the Festival.
We always strive to invite a good range of garden themed exhibitors, including Ploskorez with their useful long-handled tools and BBQ Lodges. Take a look at who’s coming here.
Last not least, you can’t have a Festival without a feast and that’s why we take such care with our foodie exhibitors. Our hand-selected range of local food producers and street food sellers produce a diverse range of tasty morsels from crepes, to hog roasts to pies and salads. We love the way these talented chefs and caterers all turn up in the most beautiful vehicles, from Titley Green’s beautiful vintage caravan to Hey Mambo’s tuk-tuk. This year they have a beautiful new horse-box (without the horse!) which we look forward to seeing. Take a look at who’s booked so far here.
Calling all exhibitors! If you are planning to exhibit with us in April and haven’t yet applied, please get your application in as soon as possible or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are coming. As you can see from the pic with Toby at the top, we are already starting to measure and draw up the layout!
