Hosted by The Cavendish Family in the grounds of their home, Holker Hall in Cark-in-Cartmel, the three day event, taking place from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th June, is a celebration of gardening, countryside, food and crafts; with a vibrant mix of horticultural displays, fragrance filled marquees, striking show gardens, country crafts and artisan produce.
Don’t miss: With TV gardening personality, Charlie Dimmock already confirmed to attend, plans for Cumbria’s annual horticultural celebration are well underway. Charlie will be the Festival’s special guest on Saturday 4th June 2016, meeting and greeting visitors on and around the showground, and taking part in Q & A sessions in the new Holker Roadshow inside the Holker Garden Theatre.
“I’m delighted to be attending the 24th Holker Garden Festival; this will be my first visit to Holker Hall and the surrounding area – I’ve heard many good things about both the Festival and the venue’s beautiful gardens and parkland. I’m particularly keen to see this year’s Show Gardens and I look forward to meeting the exhibitors and visitors during my time on the showground.” Charlie Dimmock.
Jillian Rouse, Festival Manager comments, “We are thrilled to be welcoming Charlie to this year’s Festival; we’re all a fan of hers - particularly of her Ground Force days. We look forward to picking up some good gardening tips while she is with us, and being able to introduce her to our exhibitors and visitors to the show.”
