The Show is back in town!

Antrim Castle Gardens will be bursting with colour from 5th – 7th May 2017 as Allianz Garden Show Ireland returns to the beautiful venue for a three day festival of flowers, food and fun.

With a renewed focus on gardens this year there will be more to entice and inspire every level of gardener with a warm welcome being extended to Joe Swift from BBC Gardeners World, who will be sharing his extensive knowledge during a series of interesting talks on Friday 5th May.

Local Northern Irish heritage is the influence behind the Show’s stunning large feature garden designed by Belfast based Architect and Landscape Designer James Purdy who takes his inspiration from the Mournes, while the community focused team challenge gardens will celebrate CS Lewis and draw inspiration from Narnia.

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

Allianz is delighted, once again, to be title sponsor in 2017. Last year’s event was a huge success and this year looks set to be better again. Allianz is committed to sustainability of the environment and we recognise the big part that our gardens can play in achieving this goal. We know that the 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 all that this year’s Allianz Garden Show Ireland has to offer.”
