Sponsoring and Hospitality 

In 2017 we opened our new VIP Marquee at Powderham Castle for the first time. We welcomed Manna from Devon into the marquee for exclusive cooking demos. The VIP experience was sponsored by Exeter firm Hearth & Cook, suppliers of the finest stoves and range cookers for over 40 years.

In 2018, the VIP area moved into the Castle itself, and was sponsored by Hawksmoor Investment Management with lunch provided by Feniton Foods.

As the premier gardening event in the West Country calendar, Toby’s Garden Festival is the perfect place to offer hospitality to valued clients or work colleagues, giving you a comfortable spacious base to meet up and explore the Garden Festival at your leisure.
