Chorley set for blooming marvellous award-winning flower show

Garden enthusiasts can look forward to enjoying this year’s show on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July which promises to be a great day out with celebrity guests Carol Klein and Adam Frost. Now in its fourth year, the Chorley Council run event is a firm favourite on the horticultural map and is set to be a great day out.
Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council said:
“Chorley Flower Show is our biggest events and it’s gone from strength to strength each year with such great feedback from people who have attended. We’ve already sold thousands of tickets for this year’s show and we can’t wait to see everyone having a good time and enjoying the floral displays around Astley Park. The event is just around the corner so we’d advise people to take advantage of the 20% discounted ticket price which run until Wednesday 25 July.”
