Southport Flower Show Cancelled for 2021

As the largest and longest-running independent flower shower in the UK, we have been excited to be part of the Southport Flower Show since we were asked in 2020. Unfortunately, it has been postponed again, but we are looking forward to being part of it in Summer 2022.

Chair of the Board Max Steinberg CBE said: “We have closely monitored the situation over the past few months, and it has become clear that due to the uncertainty of the pandemic we have no other option but to cancel the Show for a second successive year.

Despite the easing of lockdown measures and the progressive vaccination program, there are still too many elements that remain uncertain. The date of the 21st June is the earliest the final restrictions could be lifted and that date may be extended. If we were to go ahead and for whatever reason the Show had to be cancelled at the last minute, it would have severe financial implications for the charity.

The Board of Trustees unanimously agreed that it was better to protect the long-term survival of the Show by planning for 2022. We know what the Show means to Southport, the North West Region, exhibitors, competitors, sponsors, stewards, staff, volunteers, and our loyal visitors. We have not taken this decision lightly and we will return in 2022 with our best show ever!”

Press release: Cancelled for the second year

As you can imagine, we love everything outdoors and the combination of the grand and exquisite floral designs combined with fantastic food is definitely worth the wait. We will be there with our shepherd huts amongst the other traders who will be there to show off their unique products.

As we get more information we will keep you updated and we look forward to seeing you there!
