Virtual Shrewsbury Flower Show

Friday 14th August

Welcome to the 2020 Virtual Shrewsbury Flower Show, this would have been the 133rd show, but due to COVID-19 we have had to adapt. We’ve worked hard to bring together some varied and interesting content and we’re grateful to everyone who has given their time for free or for minimal cost. You can view & download the itinerary for both days below. Please like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram, where we are encouraging people to share and engage with the content. 
We hope you enjoy this year’s experience and very much hope we’re able to hold a show in The Quarry in 2021.
