Show dates

2–3 October 2018
Free entry, no ticket required

RHS Lindley Hall, SW1P 2QW

Celebrate the arrival of autumn with the RHS at this year's Harvest Festival Show. Free to attend, the show will take place at the RHS Lindley Hall and will showcase a host of seasonal talks, inspiring displays, thrilling competitions and more. 

See competitors go head to head to grow the biggest pumpkin and hear specialist advice from the RHS Fruit Group and National Vegetable Society for growing your favourite edibles. 

There'll also be apple tasting and sales, as well as displays from local schools that are involved with our RHS Campaign for School Gardening. Sound good? Read on to find out what else will be at our 2018 show.  

Become a piece of art

Pennard Plants has interpreted the famous artwork ‘Cookmaid with Still Life of Vegetables and Fruit’ by Sir Nathanial Bacon as an interactive living artwork. In this unique display, visitors will be encouraged to immerse themselves in a bit of history - we'll need you to complete the picture by posing as the cookmaid!
During the show, artist Nneka Uzoigwe will paint a still life inspired by the installation from Pennard Plants and will be on hand to guide visitors through her own work. Expect to see an impressive take on her favourite interest - flora.  

Heaviest Apple competition

Got a tree laden with apples at home? Well it's time for your tree to shine. Pick your heaviest home-grown apples and bring them along to the show to enter our Heaviest Apple competition.

Open to all and free to enter, we'll have a weigh-in at the RHS Fruit Group Stand. Make sure you don't miss out - we'll be announcing the winner after 2pm on Wednesday 3 October.
