Our late evening event on 28 March (6pm – 9pm) offers a preview of the show, with drinks, food, music and free activities on offer.

As part of the RHS’ commitment to grow the next generation of gardeners, from 2017, shows held in both RHS Halls (such as the RHS Spring Plant and Orchid Show), will have a small entry charge for members (£5) and the public (£6 advance, £9 on the day). Shows held in one hall only will be free to RHS members and the public (the Late event will be £5 in advance and on the day for both members and the public).

Funds from ticket sales will go towards helping to pay for RHS Apprentices, to kick-start and enable young people’s careers in horticulture. Discover more about our 2017 London shows.
