Turn Your Summer into a Celebration
Join us for an unforgettable night of fun, flowers and fireworks and be first to see the renowned RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show at our exclusive Preview Evening on Monday 3rd July, 5pm until 10.30pm.
With many vibrant show gardens across several categories, immerse yourself in the exotic, the revolutionary and the spectacular to uncover a wealth of inspiration for your own garden. The 2017 show will feature captivating favourites, such as the floral marquee and the butterfly dome, and introduce new attractions, including the new ‘Gardens for a Changing World’ category which explores how gardens need to be adapted for the 21st Century and beyond. Exhibitors, designers, and expert growers will also be on hand to lend insight into their designs and displays and offer an abundance of advice for your own garden.
Once you’ve viewed all the show has to offer, you can dance the night away to one of the many live bands. Headline acts include Georgina Jackson, who is a regular with BBC Radio Big Band and at the Royal Albert Hall, and Dai and the Ramblers, a four piece folk band with a unique Zydeco inspired sound. With four stages located alongside the Long Water – throughout the show – and amongst the flowers, there’s a band for every taste.
If you want a break from dancing, in every corner of the show you can treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy and discover a wide range of quality plants, garden and home ware – by over 300 specialist nurseries – boutique stalls and artisan traders. You can also take advantage of free talks and demonstrations offered by expert florists, chefs and gardeners and learn new skills to try at home.
When it comes to food, treat your taste buds in one of the fine dining restaurants. Whether you want to indulge in a three course set menu meal at the Allium Restaurant, savour fresh lobster, abundant seafood platters, and chilled fizz at the Champagne and Seafood Restaurant, relax at The Seafood Bar by Caviar House or lounge along the banks of the Long Water with a Best of British Hamper, there’s an option for every appetite.
The evening will finish in a spectacular fashion with a dazzling musical fireworks finale curated by the internationally renowned fireworks company Alchemy Fireworks.
The 2017 Preview Evening is sure to turn your summer into a celebration. So gather your friends and join us for a truly fantastic Summer’s evening.
