  • Be wowed by the amazing amateur marquee with regional competitions hosted by the National Sweet Pea Society and Rose Society UK
  • Enjoy a picnic on the beautiful lawns with plenty of entertainment throughout the day for all the family with horticultural demonstrations, children’s activities, food and drink and relaxing music to enjoy


Don’t forget you can play your part – the amateur competition is open for entries until Wednesday 24 July.


If you want a special treat and can’t wait for the show to open – join us for our Flower Power Festival on the Friday night.



If you need any assistance with anything please speak to one of the stewards or come to the information point outside the Coach House.


Dogs are allowed in the show area but must be on leads at all time. No dogs will be allowed in the marquees at busy times (except assistance dogs). If you want to exercise your dog you can exit the show area and return if you are wearing your wristband.


The Hall will be open throughout the weekend and is decked in floral displays offering you the chance to see it in a different light. It is one of Chorley’s landmark buildings and is free to enter so make sure you have a look inside.


A special exhibition will be taking place in the Farmhouse gallery opposite the Coach House. It is the Chorley Lodge Artists’ annual summer exhibition.


We have toilets and baby change facilities in the Coach House and Farmhouse and have provided additional facilities throughout the park.


Café Ambio will be open as usual selling food and drink in the courtyard adjacent to the Walled Garden. There is also the ‘Astley Tea Room’ outside the Coach House selling refreshments and afternoon tea. A food village and covered seating area is on the opposite side of the lake to Astley Hall.


You will have a wristband upon entry to the event. Should you wish to use any of the park’s other facilities outside the area, such as the children’s play area, then you are welcome to leave and return as you wish, but you must have your wristband to re-enter.


If you have bought the plants and items you want and want to enjoy the rest of your visit without carrying them around, we have a plant crèche by Astley Hall.


We have taken steps to ensure the event is well organised and safe for everyone to enjoy. Please respect other visitors and listen to the instructions of stewards. Smoking is not permitted in any of the buildings or marquees and we’d ask you to respect others if you are smoking within the show area.
