Tickets for the RHS Malvern Spring Festival will go on sale from today, after the announcement that the festival is to return in 2021.


In September 2020 the Malvern Plant and Garden Fair took place outdoor and socially distanced, following coronavirus guidelines and after the Spring Festival was cancelled. In 2021 the festival will be back from 5 to 9 May, with an additional fifth day and reduced daily numbers.

The festival will offer people afternoon or morning tickets, to make sure socially distancing can be achieved.

Instead of the Floral Marquee there will be an open-air specialist Nurseries Arena, featuring over 70 RHS nurseries and national collection holders.

The Malvern Spring Festival will take place on the 90-acre Three Counties Showground in Worcestershire.

Tickets for the RHS Malvern Spring Show are advance booking only.

Head of shows, Di Walton said, “We were absolutely thrilled to be announcing the return of RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May 2021, after the disappointment we all felt for our visitors after the Covid cancellation last year.

"The highly successful Malvern Plant and Garden Fair we held in September 2020, enabled us explore how best to create a spacious and exciting event that allows for social distancing and compliance with all current safety measures, while still offering a fabulously exciting gardening event. We are really looking forward to welcoming our visitors and exhibitors back in May.”


This week it was also announced that RHS Chelsea Flower Show would go ahead, with tickets also going on sale to the public from today.
