Celebrating 125 years of the Shrewsbury Flower Show

Who would have thought that a small Flower Show held in a marquee in Shrewsbury’s town centre in 1857 would grow to become the longest running flower show of its kind?

The last 125 years have seen many changes for the show, which relocated to the picturesque Quarry Park more than a century ago. Today, it’s one of the biggest landmark events in the British horticultural calendar and is attended by more than 50,000 people every year.

Nostalgia...A thing of the past? 80s Mania hits Town.
