14th September to 19th September at Leeds Castle
Leeds Castle invites you to celebrate its 900th anniversary with a spectacular ‘floral party’ throughout the principal Castle rooms for the popular Festival of Flowers.
“The loveliest Castle in the world” has been celebrating 900 years of history throughout 2019 and the ‘Festival of Flowers’ is a floral fanfare to this landmark year.
An impressive line-up of internationally award winning floral designers will take over the rooms of the Castle and dress to impress with beautiful birthday styled blooms spilling out along the visitor route.
This year Leeds Castle is delighted to welcome some new designers in Dutch floral artist Conny van der Westerlaken and one of Australia’s leading Floral Designers, Matthew Landers. They will join a host of returning prestigious designers including Morgan Douglas Nuth from Old Oak Floral Designers in Ascot, Dennis Kneepkens from the Netherlands and Dr. Solomon Leong from Solomon Bloemen in Hong Kong.
Explore the fragrant Castle and join a programme of floral demonstrations, specialist talks and daily garden tours, included as part of the entrance ticket. There will be a guest talk on Saturday 14th September by English garden designer and television personality Joe Swift, taking place in the festival marquee. There will also be the opportunity to buy beautiful flowers, David Austen roses and garden accessories from a variety of stalls on the Pavilion Lawn.
This event is included in price of admission to Leeds Castle.
