Celebrating the forthcoming Coronation of King Charles III, the event at the Great Yorkshire Showground promises a right royal selection of floristry. This includes an incredible 'floral' coronation cloak designed by award-winning, Harrogate-based florist Helen James. This majestic robe, created using a stunning array of flowers, will be the centerpiece of the show.
It will feature floral replicas of the St Edward's Crown, Sovereign's Sceptre with Cross, and Sovereign's Orb. All of these were originally created for King Charles II in 1660 by Sir Robert Vyner.
During April 20-23, Harrogate Flower Show will welcome up to 50,000 visitors, with the twice-yearly event run by the North of England Horticultural Society, one of the most highly anticipated events in the gardening calendar. The unique Floral Arts Pavilion will host the largest exhibition by florists and flower arrangers in the country.
The pavilion will include a celebration of unique British inventions, a contemporary floral interpretation of the forthcoming Coronation of King Charles III, a tribute to the extraordinary work of the late designer Dame Vivienne Westwood, and a 'live' competition throughout all four days of the event called 'Weave a Magic Web.'
