Integrity Partnership has worked closely with Shropshire Horticultural Society – organisers of the Shrewsbury Flower Show – for the last four years. To celebrate this relationship we are proud and excited to be one of the sponsors of the 2018 show, being held on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August.
The show’s history dates back as far as 1875 and today’s Flower Show features T.V. personalities, celebrity Chefs, singers and spectacular arena acts entertain the crowds for 12 hours on each day of the show, ending with a magnificent firework display.
The show is one of the country’s Premier Flower Show events, attracting top exhibitors from all over the country. It has a small permanent staff and over 100 volunteers who manage and organise the whole event, from traffic flow, marquee and services contracts, publicity and marketing, public safety, catering , entertainment, engaging specialist judges for hundreds of competitive classes etc. and ensuring that visitors have an extraordinary experience with value for money.
The main Quarry Marquee, which is non-competitive, is host to some of the top horticulturalists in the country. With more than 50 exhibitors vying for the top awards, with the standards being very high.
The popularity of the Outside Show Gardens grows each year. Judging of the Quarry Marquee takes place on Thursday and will be completed before the evening drinks party provided for Members of the Society. The Show Gardens are judged on the Friday morning.
Severn Marquee is home to the various societies, amateur growers plus Bees and Honey exhibitors. Competition is fierce amongst the amateur growers who provide some wonderful displays. Judging takes place on Friday morning before the Show opens.
Dingle Marquee is home to the popular Floral Art Exhibitors, the WI and Ask the Expert.
The show also had a full and active Lecture Theatre and there is ‘Our Future Marquee’ which is of interest to both older and younger visitors.
