Friday 8 – Sunday 10 October, 11am – 4pm

This autumn the spectacular Strawberry Hill Flower Festival returns for its third year, curated by Floral Artists Leigh Chappell & Janne Ford. Horace Walpole’s villa will once again provide a gorgeous, gothic backdrop to showcase floral designs with all its colour, drama, opulence, light and shadow at this atmospheric time of year.

The Flower Festival brings together over 30 florists and designers sharing their own artistic visions inspired by native flowers and foliage, plus dried and natural elements. All the floral designers – including Holly Bee Flowers, Twisted Sister Floral Design and Wildly Beautiful Flowers – have sustainable practices at the heart of what they do and will be demonstrating what can be achieved using traditional techniques.

In addition to the intricate and dramatic floral creations throughout the house, there will be demonstrations, tours and a talk by Floral Artist and Author Lucy Hunter and a flower clinic where our own horticultural experts will be on hand.

Pop up workshops and talk tickets to be released in July.
