We put big plans into action for the 2017 RHS London Shows, offering visitors more to see and do. The funds from their ticket sales* is being invested in supporting our charitable aims such as helping future gardening apprentices.
These shows, held at both the RHS' Lindley and Lawrence Halls, are now ticketed events costing £5 for RHS members (in advance and on the day), and £6 for non-members (£9 on the day). The RHS is committed to growing the next generation of gardeners and, in line with this ambition, the funds from these tickets will help pay for RHS Apprentices, to enable young people to follow careers in horticulture.
The 2018 line-up
In 2018 the RHS will be introducing a new Art and Photography Fair. This RHS London events line-up, also being held in both RHS Halls will be:
RHS Early Spring Plant Fair on 13 – 14 February (Late event 12 February)
RHS Orchid Show & Plant Fair on 6 – 7 April (Late event 5 April)
RHS Plant & Art Fair on 11 – 12 July (Late event 10 July)
RHS Urban Garden Show on 27 – 28 October (Late event 26 October)
There will also be one smaller RHS Gardening Event, which members and the public will also be able to visit for free:
Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, says:
"We’re committed to continuing these very special shows, where some of the UK’s best nurseries create the most beautiful plant displays, which will showcase some of the best garden and garden art displays in the world."
"Funds raised from the tickets will go towards helping support our apprentices develop skills and create experience for a solid foundation for their careers and future. Our apprentices learn on courses; develop skills in our four RHS gardens and at our world famous shows and get the chance to do work experience at leading horticultural organisations."
