With spring in the air, Antrim Castle Gardens saw the launch of the 2016 Allianz Garden Show Ireland which returns to this stunning venue for 3 fun filled days from 6th to 8th May 2016.

The event will be larger than ever with a programme that includes appearances by a host of key names from the world of gardening and food – not least the return as Show Patron of a firm favourite – BBC’s Monty Don.

With a renewed focus on gardens this year there will be more to entice and inspire every level of gardener. This year’s event will showcase a stunning large feature garden which vows to engage and excite visitors alongside the expanded range of cameo gardens and community focused gardens all celebrating local produce.

Sitting alongside the traditional array of plants, artisan food stalls, local craft and show gardens will be fun filled activities appealing to all age groups. Live music, a dedicated kids’ zone with kite making, insect hotels and fairy houses, a tea dance, flower arranging competitions and much more. In essence, this event is about much more than simply gardening!

Damien O’Neill, Group Head of Marketing for Allianz commented,

This Show not only brings communities together but also showcases the very best in the world of gardening with all its attendant benefits. We are very much looking forward to this year’s Allianz Garden Show Ireland which is going to be bigger and better than ever.”
