Squire’s Shepperton saw the welcome return of its annual Rose Festival held at the end of June in partnership with The Rose Society UK, the national society for the nation’s favourite flower.
After a two-year break due to Covid restrictions – and the only year the event hasn’t taken place in its 45-year history – The Rose Festival returned with resounding success and much to the enjoyment of exhibitors, visitors, and organizers alike. First held back in 1977 in the year of Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee, the event has become an annual fixture and a special highlight for our business. The Rose Festival made a timely return this year for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Sarah Squire, Chairman, comments: ”We were delighted to host The Rose Festival this year and so pleased it was so well-supported, with exhibitors traveling from far and wide across the UK to share their stunning roses and their creativity. It was wonderful to see many familiar faces being with us and a true celebration of ‘the queen of flowers.’
”We had music from the renowned Panama Café Orchestra jazz band, excellent weather conditions – which were just suitable for roses – and exquisite floral art displays brought along from the Walton and Weybridge Flower Club. While exhibitors traveled many miles to come to the event, it was also a wonderful community event with local visitors enjoying the displays and general atmosphere.”
