Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding events during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the RHS is cancelling RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival
Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival was originally set to take place in July this year, and had been rescheduled to a new date in September in the hope that circumstances might allow it to go ahead. The RHS had been looking forward to staging this magnificent celebration of gardening, however, it will not go ahead in 2020.
Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, said: “We had so hoped that we could hold our much-loved RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival this autumn for our members, visitors, exhibitors and sponsors, but sadly in these challenging times this is just not possible.”
Similarly, the rescheduled RHS Flower Shows, which were due to take place at RHS Garden Rosemoor and RHS Garden Hyde Hall in September have also been cancelled.
Sue said: “The health and safety of people is our primary consideration and we are carefully following Government advice and making responsible decisions.
“Our Virtual Chelsea online event did so much to bring some horticultural joy to the nation as well as crucially supporting the horticulture industry. We continue to promote our nurseries through The Garden magazine and online during this time.”
Everyone who has purchased a ticket to the affected 2020 shows will be contacted by the RHS and offered 2021 show dates, refunds and other options should they wish to show their support of the RHS.
Sue added: “We hope to welcome you back in 2021 to some spectacular shows including, of course, the world’s best flower show, Chelsea.”
Shows cancelled for the remainder of 2020 include:
