If the Chelsea Flower Show whetted your appetite for all things floral, then you’ll want to hear that a gothic house will be filled with flowers for a whole weekend later this year.

(c) Strawberry Hill House & Garden

For one weekend, Strawberry Hill House in southwest London will be filled with the work of 30 floral designers, who have been given the run of the building for their displays.

Responding to the theme of “nature unbound”, sustainable practices utilising the latest floristry techniques are at the heart of the display. The flowers are either grown by the artists themselves or are sourced from local farmers and other sustainable businesses. No floral foam or single-use plastics are involved, with the only waste being a large compost heap.

With no fake flowers, the very nature of the art means the show can only run for three days, and to protect the interior of the Grade I listed building, there are also limited tickets available.

Tickets are on sale now from here.

  • Standard Adult Ticket: £19
  • Members & Patrons: £14
  • Students: £14

The Strawberry Hill House Flower Festival takes place from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th September 2024.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
