Family time for rugby star!

National Gardening Week saw Ulster Rugby Star Ian Humphreys and his family helping launch the family programme for this year’s Allianz Garden Show Ireland event which takes place 8-10 May at Antrim Castle Gardens.
A ‘Festival of flowers, food and fun’, the 2015 Allianz Garden Show Ireland programme has loads of interest to entertain each member of the family. From Bush Craft skills and Archery for young adventurers to honey-making, flower arranging and basket weaving – there’s a chance for everyone to take home new skills! A dedicated children’s ‘Bean Bag Cinema’ will provide a welcome rest point for weary legs and `Allianz Scarecrow Wood’ – created by children from Integrated Primary Schools throughout Northern Ireland – is always a family photo stop!

Live music, artisan food and drink stalls, cream teas, thousands of plants and crafts and plenty of gardening experts on hand, including BBC’s Monty Don who will be appearing at the Show on Saturday 9th May are just some of the treats in store.

Ulster Rugby star Ian Humphreys had this to say; “We heard so many great reports about the Show last year from friends and family that we knew we couldn’t miss it this year. Antrim Castle Gardens is one of our favourite places to go as a family so we are delighted that the Show is there and we know our daughters will adore all the family activities provided. Jenny and I love having fun family days out with our girls and we are really looking forward to going to Allianz Garden Show Ireland this year.”

The 2015 Allianz Garden Show Ireland will run from 8th – 10th May at Antrim Castle Gardens and is open daily from 10am-6pm with parking adjacent. Adults are £10 (concession £8) and the event is FREE for children under 16.
