Floral Attractions

The Shrewsbury Flower Show features TV personalities, celebrity chefs, singers and spectacular arena acts entertaining the crowds for 12 hours on each day, ending with a magnificent finale and firework display.

The show is one of the country’s Premier Flower Show events, attracting top exhibitors from all over the country. It has a small permanent staff and over 100 volunteers who manage and organise the whole event, from traffic flow, marquee and services contracts, publicity and marketing, public safety, catering, entertainment, engaging specialist judges for hundreds of competitive classes etc, and ensuring our visitors have an extraordinary experience with value for money.

The Quarry Marquee

Quarry Marquee, the main floral venue, is home to the top national nurseries and growers who create stunning displays to admire and inspire.

Judging of the Quarry Marquee takes place on the eve of the Show, which means all the winners can have on display the awards and trophies they received during the two days of the events.
