Home and Garden Show returns to Cumbria for third year
The anticipated Home and Garden show is returning to Rheged this March, and is set to be the biggest yet.
A celebration of Cumbria’s arts and crafts heritage, the event brings together over 70 exhibitors, who’ll be showing visitors all aspects of home and garden design, innovation and construction.
Taking place at the Rheged Centre on March 18-19, this year also features a programme of Masterclasses, teaching skills like willow weaving, cooking with herbs, French polishing, stencilling, and upholstery.
Experts in all aspects of home and garden design will be at the event, on hand to give advice on everything from outdoor kitchens and saunas to the latest in bathroom and kitchen design, total home automation, environmental design and much more.
Products will be on sale at the show too, including specialist paints, artworks, and plants.
Events include the ever popular Gardener’s Question Time, chaired by broadcaster and writer Eric Robson, which will let visitors get answers to their most pressing horticultural conundrums, from seed propagation to slug defence tactics.
The show will also feature a New Quilting exhibition in Rheged's Gallery, which will feature over 70 contemporary quilts from National and European makers.
The small specialist Masterclasses must be booked in advance, and are led by experts over the weekend, teaching: designing a willow woven structure, cooking with herbs, French polishing, stencilling, and upholstery.
The Home and Garden Show has been organised by the Rheged Centre and CN Events in partnership with Maureen Whitemore - who has run the successful interior design company Whitemore and Thwaytes Interiors in Penrith for over 30 years - and Liz Newport, an accomplished garden designer of Buzy Lizzie Garden Design.
Together they have curated the show, aiming to offer creativity, diversity and quality craftsmanship - as helping to solve the various challenges which come with a major renovation project.
The event is sponsored by Penrith Building Supplies, The Rusland Movement Cabinetmakers, Kendal Quality Carpets and G&S Specialist Timber, Stainton.
Tickets for the Home and Garden Show cost £6 per day, children 16 and under go free.
The show ticket includes access to all the Exhibition Halls and a variety of talks on both days.
The Gardener's Question Time on Saturday 18th is an additional £3 with profits going to the mental health charity Growing Well, based at Low Sizergh, Kendal. Masterclasses are priced separately.
Visitors wanting to attend the expert-led Masterclasses will need to book their place in advance.
