This year, British floral enthusiasts will have a new event to look forward to. The Port Eliot Flower Show, will be curated by production designer of the Rambert Dance Company, Michael Howells, who plans to pay homage to traditional British summer flower shows while adding a new twist.

The festival will feature competitions, flower arranging demonstrations, specially designed displays, a tea room and several horticulturists. The festival will take place within the Orangery at Port Eliot gardens.

Competitions at the festival will not conform to the usual etiquette of flower shows as prescribed by the National Association of Flower Arranging Society competitions manual. The judges, Kitty Arden, Lady Boyd, Michael Howells and Lady St Germans, are more interested in the creative imagination of entrants than technical mastery or precision.

There will be a total of 11 categories for adults and three for children. Qualifying applicants for the children's competition must be younger than 15 years old, and competition challenges include creating an arrangement in a thimble for a tea party of mice and an arrangement that depicts a great novel.

"I am incredibly excited about the wonderful array of speakers, performers and imaginative ideas we have brought together for this first ever Port Eliot Flower Show," said Howells.

Well known horticulturists such as Anna Pavord, author of the Tulip and Bulb, will be discussing gardens in literature, as well as many other related topics.
