WENTWORTH Woodhouse will host a prestigious flower show for the first time next year.

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced that the flower show, previously held at Tatton Park, will be held at the grand site next year.

The show has attracted around 80,000 visitors in previous years - and it’s hoped the turnout next year will be similar.

Helen Pettit, the RHS director of shows, commercial and innovation, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be introducing a new RHS Show at Wentworth Woodhouse next year.

“It’s a beautiful location with historic gardens but also part of an area that has big plans for regeneration that we’re proud to play a part in.

“Working with Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust we’ll be able to reach out to local communities, schools, designers, nurseries and all the stakeholders that the RHS collaborates with and we’re excited about the opportunities these new partnerships will offer.”

Wentworth Woodhouse’s events manager, Helen Flower, added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with the RHS and to be able to include a flower show in our 2025 events programme.

“The gardens are a special place and this show will not only allow new visitors to enjoy them, but will also give our local community the opportunity to engage with something exciting and new.”
