Marlborough Festival of Flowers
As part of the town’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations we’re inviting everyone to flood Marlborough with flowers during July 2022
How you choose to get involved is up to you: residents, businesses, pubs, community groups and schools are all invited. There are no rules: the only limit is your imagination and creativity and what you do may include, but not be limited to: Your front garden, a window box, a display in your window …Platinum Jubilee or royal theme optional!
Whatever you decide to do, please let us know: send us a photo, or ask us to come and take one. It would be perfect if your creation could be easily seen from the street so people can come and admire your work. If this is the case, for example a front garden, then let us know and we’ll create a walking trail map so that we can all take a stroll to admire each other’s efforts. If not, a photo for our online gallery will be great too. Remember that simple things like litter picking your street or cleaning windows will add to the overall effect.
We will publish a photo gallery of your displays on our website and social media.
The Festival is just for fun, so no rules, judging or prizes
Whether you do it for the Queen, yourself, the bees, your street or your community, we really hope you’ll join us.
Start planning and, more importantly, start planting!
Marlborough in Bloom
The Bloomers have taken the difficult decision to take a break. Like many of us, the members of the Marlborough in Bloom Committee struggled to keep things going during and after 2020 because of Covid-19, but it disbanded on a high with another Gold for the town.
This may not be goodbye forever, but there will be no entry into the South West in Bloom competition this year. We’ve selected July for this festival because that is usually when the RHS judges have paid us a visit, and to keep the Jubilee celebrations going beyond the June bank holiday. We hope it will ensure that we can all continue to admire and be proud of Marlborough, in bloom.
