Holker Garden Festival 2015
Presenting the very best of gardening, countryside, food and crafts, the 23rd Holker Garden Festival is a three day summer extravaganza, set in the grounds of Holker Hall in Cark-in-Cartmel, Cumbria and will take place from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st May 2015.
Bursting with magnificent horticultural displays, fragrance filled marquees, inspiring show gardens, live garden theatre and rare and unusual plants; green fingered visitors will be spoilt for choice.
There will be plenty of good old fashioned family fun on the agenda (don’t forget children under 16 go free!) with a glorious, 50ft traditional Victorian Helter Skelter set in the very centre of the Festival for all to enjoy. Live, action packed shows held regularly in the Festival arena including the daring, world famous Gerard Naprous & the Devil's Horsemen Stunt Team and their Wild West Show and the very talented Shadowquest working dogs display team. The popular Drakes of Hazard make a welcome return and giant bees will be buzzing around!
Foodies will find a veritable feast of delights to tempt their taste buds with a variety of Artisan and local produce available from delicious afternoon teas with fresh strawberries and cream to hearty hog roasts. Or why not step in to the Cartmel ‘pop-up’ Village and taste some of its well-known delicacies from businesses such as Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding, Cartmel Cheeses and Unsworth Brewery.
Whether you’re looking for gardening, rural life, artisan produce, country crafts or family fun this summer, you will be sure to find it at the Holker Garden Festival. We hope you’ll join us!
