It’s not all about gardening, with ongoing and varied artisan demonstrations and the busy ‘Studio Shops’ showcasing talented designers willing to share their expertise: jewellery design, water colour painting, photography, weaving, felt making, forging, pottery along with delicious foods and wines to taste and so much more.

There is also plenty to engage children and the whole family, with entertainment and activities including Carousel Amusements, Chichester City Band, Crazee Hazee, Dawn's Vintage Do, Huxley Birds of Prey, Jazz Magic, South Downs Folk Singers and Twinkles Face Painting.

This year's show is suppoerting Chichester charity CancerWise, which offers support and information to cancer patients, their families and carers in the West Sussex and East Hampshire area.

CancerWise will be running a tombola at the show, with all the prizes kindly donated by the Garden Show exhibitors, as well as bringing the fun of the fete with guessing games and more.
