First ever, exclusive preview evening to be held in Holker Garden Festival's Grand Floral Marquee

For the first time ever, visitors have the opportunity to attend an exclusive ticket holder, VIP preview evening and be the first to see the winning exhibits in the Holker Garden Festival Horticultural Marquee shortly after the judging on the eve of the 23rd show. 

Hosted by The Cavendish Family, the evening will commence with champagne and canapés in the impressive Horticultural Marquee.  Special guest and Head Judge, Rae Beckwith will be introduced by Lucy Cavendish to give guests an insight in to life as an official judge; Rae isa Member of the Guild of Horticultural Trade Display Judges, and judges at major shows around the country, including The Chelsea Flower Show.

 

Whilst the award results and certificates are being prepared, there will be the opportunity to walk round the Marquee with Rae and the fellow judges, as they talk about individual exhibits, how they were judged, standards of the plants, and general feedback.  As you wander, enjoy the sounds of jazz trio, Riverboat Days who will be providing the evening’s music. 

 

The night will be a fascinating behind the scenes look at the judging process, all the hard work that goes in to exhibiting at a horticultural event, and, of course, staging a winning display.  The preview evening takes place on Thursday 28th May 2015 from 6-8pm.  Tickets are on sale now priced £25 per person, and available to buy from the Festival Show Office, tel 015395 58838.
