Meet The Rusland Movement

As the Holker Garden Festival gets ready to celebrate its 22nd year, we meet some of the exhibitors that are preparing to make this year’s show the best yet.

 

The arts and crafts tradition comes to Holker as The Rusland Movement exhibit at the Garden Festival for the very first time. To mark their first appearance at the show, the team of artisan makers are planning to create a large, bespoke piece of furniture especially for the event, alongside which they will exhibit a short film documenting its creation.

Dan Critchley comments “We are actually bringing our entire showroom with us, which we hope will make a real impression on visitors. We also really wanted to do something special for the festival and by filming the processes we go through to hand make our furniture, we hope to give people a glimpse of the time, care and attention to detail that goes in to all of our work. As for what the bespoke creation will be, well that’s a surprise!”

Full house for popular chilli eating competition

This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga.  A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition.   Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage.  Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
