Lanark FlowerFest 10th – 12th May

Sadly, I’ll not be able to make this as I’ll be up running The Road to the Isles half marathon in Arisaig, however, it looks like a lovely day out in a beautiful part of Scotland.

‘FlowerFest’ is a 3-day celebration of the horticultural heritage of the Clyde Valley in Scotland.

The festival opens on Friday 10th May and runs until Sunday 12th May. There will be a whole range of garden-themed activities including garden centre displays, planter competitions, plant sales, tours of the park and a Gardeners’ Question Time chaired by Beechgrove Garden’s George Anderson. To attract a wider audience, there will also be entertainment from local groups, food & drink, a craft tent and kids’ entertainment.

Entry is £3 for adults per day or £5 for a 3-day weekend pass. School age children are free. Further information about the festival, including the full programme line-up, is available here.
