The North’s biggest show bites the dust

The latest casualty following the Government recommendation for social distancing and the withdrawal of emergency support for mass gatherings is the Harrogate Spring Flower Show.

The show, held at The Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, was due to be held from April 23-26.

Organisers believe that it would be in the best interests of visitors and exhibitors to cancel the show.

For anyone who has bought tickets for the spring show, you can get either a refund or tickets for the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show, which runs from September 18-20 at Newby Hall & Gardens.

Refunds to exhibitors

Organisers will be issuing refunds to exhibitors who had booked stands at the show.

As credit and debit card details are not stored, large-scale refunds will take some time to be processed. As a charity with a very small team, issuing refunds or replacement tickets on this scale will be a huge undertaking.

If you would like a refund or transfer to autumn show tickets, email show organisers with your name, address, daytime contact number and postcode to info@flowershow.org.uk or call 01423 648212 from tomorrow (Wednesday, March 18).

Please note that anyone who booked tickets through a third party, e.g. a coach company, will need to go back to them, as the point of sale, for a refund on tickets. For more information, visit https://www.flowershow.org.uk/ticket-info.
