A family day out at Tatton Park

There were plenty of features at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park in 2015 that made up a perfect summer day out for all the family

School Gardens

As part of the Feast Zone at the show, 22 School Gardens were built and designed by local primary and secondary schools, featuring lots of edible ideas from the young gardeners of the future.

Read about the wonderful RHS Campaign for School Gardening, where your school can sign up and get involved with exciting schemes, develop the school garden and get growing.

Rural Crafts

Young visitors could create something beautiful at one of our traditional rural workshops, from walking stick making and willow weaving to woodland crafts, where they could make their own stool, rake or bird feeder. Theycould also get hands-on advice at the RHS Hub, cooking demos at the Feast Theatre, have a go at an allotment plot or learn about foraging.

Carnival spirit

Bringing a summer smile was the carnival theme. Families could take a ride on the Flowery Ferris Wheel and Colourful Carousel, with floral decorations provided by North West NAFAS (flower arranging society). Music was enjoyed at the bandstand, or families could relax in the picnic and food stand area. There was also The Great Garden Carnival Parade with beautiful butterflies and music, organised by Cabasa Carnival Arts, a local community interest company.
