Talks & events

There are two main talks theatres within the showground, hosting talks and demonstrations each day, along with an Outdoor Classroom hosting events suitable for adults and children. All are free for event visitors and the 2017 schedule was as follows:

The Garden Theatre

Hosted by Martin Fish, you'll be entertained by interactive sessions and a programme of talks - full of knowledge from horticultural experts and specialists.


Outdoor Classroom

Try your hand at a new skill - with events suitable for both adults and children, there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained.


Artisan Kitchen Theatre

Enjoy an exciting programme of demonstrations devised by The School of Artisan Food featuring food historians, local Michelin chefs, published cooks and food bloggers.


Outside the Kitchen Theatre

Throughout the day live demonstrations and talks will take place outside the Artisan Kitchen Theatre.
