New for 2017 – Forde Abbey’s beautiful grounds also offers exhibitors a wide range of options in terms of where they trade from to make the most of the festival.

Forde Abbey offers space only pitches (for you to pitch your own gazebo or similar). The site will include a stalls on the Abbey East Lawn, Abbey Kitchen Gardens, the Abbey Lower Lawn, Abbey Top Lawn, the Mount and the herbaceous borders.

Following the success of three years at Powderham, we are sticking to the format of the event – focussing on smaller numbers of good quality exhibitors, and providing a great day out for all garden lovers. We expect several thousand to attend across the weekend.

Powderham Castle offers us the chance to offer exhibitors a wide range of options in terms of where they trade from to make the most of the festival.

We are offering a choice of either pre-erected market stalls or space only (for you to pitch your own gazebo or similar) as well as tables inside the beautiful ground floor rooms of the Castle or our Artisan Marquee. The site will include a very limited number of stalls on the Castle Driveway and Pleasure Garden area, the Courtyard in front of the Castle, The North Lawn, The Lower Lawn/Deer Park, The Rose Garden and of course inside the Castle.

Since the success of the first festival in 2014 we’ve resisted the temptation to simply get bigger to focus on quality and creating a friendly, inclusive atmosphere. And that’s what makes Toby’s Garden Festival at Powderham so special ensuring visitors, who come by the thousand, enjoy a great day out, while our family of exhibitors enjoy great trade.
