This local show sounds like its going to be a brilliant show

Today, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) announces initial plans for the new RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, which will take place on the stunning 1,000-acre parkland of the Chatsworth Estate. The home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and set in the heart of the rolling Derbyshire countryside the estate will welcome the latest addition to the RHS Flower Show calendar next year from 7-11 June.

 

For the 2017 show, the overarching theme will be ‘Design Revolutionaries’, celebrating creative people through history, the present and future, who through their foresight and innovation change the way we think about and approach gardens and garden design.

 

The show will celebrate and take inspiration from great historical revolutionaries such as Sir Joseph Paxton and Lancelot Capability Brown, both of whom have left a lasting legacy in landscape design and had a great impact on the Chatsworth Estate. The show will celebrate present design and gardening trends and look to the future by providing a platform for new horticultural pioneers to share their innovations and fresh ideas.

 

The Floral Marquee will take inspiration from Joseph Paxton’s Great Conservatory which housed a host of horticultural specimens, from exotic palms and aquatic plants, to brilliantly coloured flowers.

 

The familiar marquee format seen at RHS Shows will be transformed and the world's leading nurseries, specialist exhibits and floral installations will be housed in a striking new structure visible from all parts of the showground.

 

With the River Derwent running through the centre of the showground, a series of bridges will form key focal points, linking both sides of the show. One bridge created by the RHS will take the form of an historic Palladian bridge on the outside, but as visitors enter the bridge to pass into the Great Conservatory, they will be taken on a floral journey.

 

Applications are invited from designers and installation artists to transform the two other bridges into floral experiences for visitors.

 

Nick Mattingley, Head of RHS Shows said: ‘RHS Chatsworth Flower Show will set itself apart from our current portfolio of shows. Our amazing Shows Team are working to deliver a unique experience for our visitors, inspired by both the setting and the theme of ‘Design Revolutionaries’.

 

“Our aim is to create a new show that champions horticultural innovation and is bursting with fresh ideas. RHS Chatsworth will be playful, fun and unforgettable for visitors from beginning to end. We, and our contributors, are developing really exciting ideas for show content, we’re looking forward to sharing them as they develop over the next year.’

 

Tickets to RHS Chatsworth Flower Show will go on sale on June 7th and can be bought at rhs.org.uk/flowershows.
