See you in Spring 2019!
We’re back for our sixth Garden Festival in the stunning grounds of Powderham Castle on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th May 2019 – the first Spring Bank Holiday of the year! We’ve got lots of new and exciting attractions, including a new layout to the front of the castle, with more under-cover space in the shape of our Artisan Barn & Theatre and a new Country Gardener Magazine Talks Tent. And for everyone who wanted to bring their furry friend we’re pleased to announce that we are now a DOG FRIENDLY festival!
This year our festival will be divided into zones, including the Gardening Village, Feast Street and Craft Zone to help you more easily find what you are looking for. All your favourite nurseries will be back, including award-winning Chelsea stalwarts and we’ll be updating the website with the names of all our 2019 exhibitors as they are confirmed so do keep checking back for more up to date information.
Advance tickets to the festival are now on sale – buy online and you’ll save 20% on the gate price! BUY YOURS NOW! Children under 12 go FREE in 2019.
