Strawberry Hill House Flower Festival 2022
Friday 23 – Sunday 25 September, 11am – 5pm

The Strawberry Hill House Flower Festival, curated by Leigh Chappell & Janne Ford, returns for a fourth successive year this September with a spectacular showcase of the very best of British-grown flowers, foam-free sustainable floristry, and the design creativity of the UK’s leading floral designers.

Strawberry Hill House offers a breath-taking setting for the Flower Festival, shining a spotlight on the beauty, variety and versatility of the fresh and dried flowers and foliage cultivated by British flower farmers. The Flower Festival gives free creative rein to the invited florists to share their artistry, expertise, and passion for sustainable floral design.

The Flower Festival is produced for the first time this year in association with Flowers from the Farm, the award-winning membership organisation championing artisan growers of local, seasonal British cut flowers.
