Times are a-changing for Ayr Flower Show
This year’s 54th Ayr Flower Show has reverted to its original dates and instead of being held in early August, the 2014 Show will be held from Friday, 22nd to Sunday 24th August, spanning what is now a nationally-recognised Bank Holiday Weekend.
Set in Rozelle Park, with its feature trees, ponds, and woodland walks near to Burns’ Birthplace in Alloway, today’s Ayr Flower Show is much more than an opportunity for gardening enthusiasts to admire bonny begonias and dazzling delphinia, or to purchase plants and related gardening items. For it is now a three-day family festival in which food and fun complement flowers and fruit in a heady mixture that has become increasingly attractive to a much wider market.
Already viewed as a major “Family Day Out” event, there is an even greater incentive this year for families to visit the Show as ALL accompanied youngsters aged under 16 years are being admitted totally FREE. To avoid queuing, on-line ticket purchase is being encouraged and Car Parking at the Show remains FREE of CHARGE!
At Ayr Flower Show, visitors can admire the multiplicity of spectacular competition entries in many different classes; view specially-created miniature and themed gardens; sample speciality food and drinks from across the UK; enjoy a range of entertainment, floral art and cookery demonstrations; and learn more about gardening during regular question sessions hosted by gardening experts.
