What's on

Food Festival at Southport Flower Show

Over the years, food and drink has played an increasingly important role in the flower show.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with a varied programme of demonstrations from experts and professionals. You can also sample and buy produce from the 60 or so gourmet producers who exhibit here.

The bustling food marquee will include a full working kitchen where professional chefs will demonstrate their skills and show you how they make their signature dishes.

Thank you to In-toto Kitchens, supporter of our demonstration theatre.

In-toto Kitchens Southport offers a full design and installation service for kitchens and living spaces.  Our showroom on Eastbank Street showcases an inspiring collection of German furniture for all styles, taste and budgets.  Call in and see our working kitchen in action – and try before you buy!
