New idea for Flower Shows - VIP treatment

TWO new hospitality services have been introduced as part of plans to expand Harrogate Flower Shows.

A VIP experience and first-class business hospitality will be offered at both of the twice-yearly shows, beginning with the Spring Flower Show in April.

The VIP service includes use of a private hospitality marquee and cloakroom, morning coffee, a Bucks Fizz reception and a three-course lunch with wine. Guests will receive an introduction to highlights from the show team and preferential parking.

The business hospitality service, meanwhile, is aimed at companies and professionals entertaining guests during the show weekend.

Show director Martin Fish said: “Many of our visitors and partner businesses have told us that they would like an opportunity to make the flower show an unforgettable experience, as well as a great day out.

“The VIP package offers the chance to combine all the favourite features of the shows with fine dining and the use of private facilities for relaxing and savouring the atmosphere of the day. Our new business hospitality service is a natural extension of the range of partnership opportunities we already provide for companies across the region.”

The VIP experience costs £99 per person, with more information available online at or by calling 01423 546157. For information about the hospitality service, email Deborah Wright at or call 01423 546216.

The Spring Flower Show takes place from April 26 to 29 and tickets booked by noon on April 17 get a £2.50 discount. Prices on the day are £16 for the Thursday, Friday or Saturday, or £14 for the Sunday, and under 16s go free.
