The Stonor Tulip & Spring Flower Festival
Looking for a spectacular day out this bank holiday weekend? Well don’t worry, Stonor Park has got you covered.
From the 30th April – 2nd May Stonor will be hosting The Stonor Tulip & Spring Flower Festival.
Stonor Park is one of the oldest family homes still lived in today, having been the Stonor family's residence for over 850 years, and this bank holiday weekend the stunning house will be transformed with wonderful displays of Tulips and Seasonal Flowers, with florists and teams from the Berkshire School of Agriculture currently busily decorating rooms with thousands of flowers into a variety of arrangements.
And don't worry about the weather - as although the forecast isn't looking great, once you step through the doors of Stonor house the sunshine awaits!
On the 1st and 2nd of May there’s even to be demonstrations by renowned floral arranger, Jonathan Moseley, who’s the co-host of the BBC Big Allotment Challenge. Aptly titled Tulipomania, the exclusive demonstrations are sure to entertain!
Speaking about the even Jonathan has said: “Tulips are one of the most magnificent and outrageous spring flowers, and I am thrilled to be bringing my floral creativity to magnificent Stonor Park.”
He went on to say: “Visitors can join me to watch an eclectic assortment of spring flowers transformed before their eyes into exciting contemporary and classic flower arrangements.
"Learn how the Tulip caused an entire countries economy to collapse, find out where the name tulip is derived from and enjoy my top tips for keeping your spring floral displays fresh and long lasting."
And if you're feeling peckish you’ll be able to munch on delicious food provided by Luscombe’s of Henley, with a huge selection of hot and cold food including fish and chips and sumptuous afternoon teas.
So wait are you waiting for? Time to book your tickets!
