Hatchers once again sponsored the Lecture Marquee at the Shrewsbury Flower Show on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th August 2019.
The Lecture Marquee programme included flower arranging by two experts from the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS).
In between the flower arranging, Ben Mayho from Wildcraft gave a demonstration on Willow Weaving, and this year’s Celebrity Gardener, David Domoney shared his handy garden tips. Chris Smith from Pennard Plants made cocktails from his garden for everyone to taste, and there were plenty of questions at the show’s very own Gardeners’ Question time, with panellists David Domoney, Margaret Thrower and Mike Hinton.
MLE Pyrotechnics Ltd provided the spectacular evening fireworks with a space theme, including full colour lasers, bringing both the evenings to a stunning climax.
Other attractions included the well-known Aussie television chef, John Torode, as well as Gary Mullen and the Works (Queen Tribute Band) performing live on the Friday evening, and Scouting for Girls on stage on the Saturday evening.
Whilst the weather on both days was changeable, ranging from beautiful sunshine to downpours and thunder and lightning, this did not stop everyone from having a very enjoyable time.
