For 2018 there is a new addition to the Crab and Lobster Festival on Saturday 19th May: the Crab and Lobster Gardening Festival to be held in North Lodge Park.

This festival fringe event will build on the enormous success of the Crab and Lobster Festival, providing the thousands of visitors with an extra, different, focus. During the day there will be numerous gardening themed events for all from experienced gardeners to young (aspiring) gardeners, with a range of gardening related stalls, including many plant specialists, selling a range of plants and other products for the garden.

Among the activities, children will be able to plant sunflowers in the Park, enter a mini-scarecrow competition, and create garden angels. Alongside the stalls there will be gardening advice, a plant swap and demonstrations.

If you would like to take part in this exciting new experience, please get in touch with your proposals for the day. The organisers are looking for creative ideas around the gardening theme to make the day really special, and for local businesses to take a stall to bring their products to the attendees.

Please get in touch – - for more information or visit the park website where stalls can be booked.
