In its beautiful setting at the foot of the scenic Malvern Hills, this truly inspirational show enjoys a national reputation as the finest and friendliest gardening event of the year, with inspirational Show Gardens created by top designers including RHS Gold Medal Winners, RHS flower marquee, Trade Stands and more. This year a new show garden category has been introduced, Spa Gardens. These gardens give new and fledgling designers the platform to showcase their talents. The new Shopping Arcades have a selection of handpicked artisan craft on offer. The theme for 2017 is Malvern’s fashionable spa town past and the festival reflects the enjoyment of shopping as a fabulous leisure experience in the Victorian era.
