SOUTH CORNWALL SET TO BLOSSOM FOR FALMOUTH SPRING FESTIVAL (26th March – 3rd April)

Featuring Plant Shows, Gardeners’ Question Time, Guided Walks, Open Gardens, Spring Fair, and much, much more…

Falmouth in South Cornwall is going to be a hotspot for everyone seeking out beauty during the last week of March until April 3rd as the city hosts its first ‘Spring Festival.’  On display will be everything from plant sales to flower shows to plenty of spring activities, food fairs, and even a fashion show.  The displays will be spread out across town with even a Gardeners Question time scheduled to take place where you can get all the answers you need for an excellent spring garden this year.

The festival kicks off on March 26th with the Princess Pavilion hosting a two day flower show that will show off the best of spring’s flowers.  Both novice and professional gardeners are invited to attend and encouraged to drop by the National Maritime Musuem in Cornwall come March 28th to get some great spring gardening tips from the experts.

There will also be plenty of family friendly activities taking place throughout the rest of the week including foraging workshops, guided walks, and a rockpooling event at Castle Beach.

On Friday 1st April, a short ferry ride will lead the way to a special opening of the magnificent Lamorran Garden at St Mawes with its diverse range of sub-tropical plantlife. Later in the day the National Maritime Museum Cornwall will be hosting a Spring Fashion Show, and the first of three Garden Spring Cleans will also be taking place as the Community Alive Team helps to create ‘mini garden makeovers’ for the elderly and those in need. Saturday 2nd April and Sunday 3rd April will then see a spectacular Spring Fair hosted on Discovery Quay featuring fresh local produce and craft, music and children’s activities.

Throughout the week, local businesses and residents will be adding some magical floral touches to their windows and window-boxes. Some of Falmouth’s budding talent and hidden gardening delights will also be on show with a collaborative garden/outdoor art project between local schools and University College Falmouth (UCF) and a series of Open Gardens (normally private gardens opened to the public) both in the pipeline.
