RHS Chatsworth Flower Show will be set within the 404.6ha (1000 acre) parkland of the Chatsworth Estate, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Adding to the show portfolio of the RHS, which already includes shows at Chelsea, Cardiff, Malvern, Hampton Court and Tatton Park in Cheshire, the Chatsworth event will seek to expand on current offerings and surprise and delight visitors with an immersive horticultural event experience.
Its overarching theme is ‘Design Revolutionaries’ and will celebrate not only the creative genius of gardeners and garden designers from the past, especially Joseph Paxton who was once the estate’s gardener, but also the talent, ideas and conceptual thinking of today’s generation of designers.
The rolling countryside of Derbyshire is the venue for the newest RHS show, and, with a stunning venue and a fresh vision, it will be an exciting time to get involved and be part of something amazing.
The show organisers are already working hard to make this show one of a kind. You can expect:
- interactive workshops
- decorated walkways
- tunnels and bridges
- wildflower meadows
Key differences at the show
- The design of the showground will also be less grid-like and more free-flowing, working with the natural curves of the beautiful landscape.
- At the heart of the site, a newly-commissioned structure pays homage to Joseph Paxton’s Great Conservatory completed at Chatsworth in 1840, ahead of the Crystal Palace in London in 1851.This Great Conservatory will be home to nurseries, specialist societies and floral design.
- There will be opportunities for designers, growers, artists, communities and schools to get involved as well as tradestands retailing the best products for the home and garden.
- Fresh ideas, cutting edge design and new technology will be at the heart of the show.
RHS Chatsworth Flower Show is the event where exhibitors can truly be bold, make a statement, and create new trends.
