2016 - the show gets bigger and better!

TThe Stratford-upon-Avon Home & Garden Show is returning to The Recreation Ground in July 2016!

By kind permission, and desire, of Stratford District Council, the Show is returning to the Recreation Ground, in the centre of the town, on the banks of the beautiful River Avon, over the weekend of 15th – 17th July. With the magnificent backdrop of the Holy Trinity Church and the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre, it is a stunning, prestigious venue for this quality, annual event.

2016 will be a special year for Stratford-upon-Avon as it celebrates William Shakespeare in the 400th anniversary of his death. The Show will embrace the celebrations with a number of Shakespearean-themed features as well as hosting at least two fabulous show gardens. There will also be an opportunity for everyone to join in our 'Garden in a Wheelbarrow' competition, sponsored by Blenheim Nursery, whether they have a large or small garden, and there will be a children’s category as well! In addition we will be inviting the wonderful narrowboats that grace the river and Bancroft basin in Stratford to enter the 'Best Floral Display on a Canal Boat' competition. Further details of both these competitions will be posted soon.

The Stratford-upon-Avon Home & Garden Show will form just one part of a fabulous weekend you can choose to spend in Stratford - with great places to stay, visit, eat and shop! Check out our ‘In & Around Stratford’ page for more details of the other exciting things the town has to offer.
