Win VIP tickets to hobnob with celebrities at Holker

THE Evening Mail today gives five lucky readers the chance to win a pair of VIP tickets to this year’s Holker Garden Festival.

NEARLY READY: Early preparations are taking place for the Holker Garden Festival. Julie Chambers, assistant to the garden festival chief steward, inspects plants with ground maintenance manager Graham DobsonJON GRANGER REF: 50019473B005

The event, of which the Mail is a sponsor, will be held over the weekend of June 3-5 and promises to be one to remember.

Preparations are now well-underway, with marquees going up, horticulturalists putting the finishing touches to their impressive displays and traders preparing to present their wares

The event, spread over 25 acres of the Holker estate, is now in its 19th year.

Sarah Ross, Festival Manager, said: “It’s so exciting to see the Festival showground site taking shape again – it is so much of the rhythm of the year here at Holker and the first glimpse of the marquees going up in the deer park is very much part of that.

“This year we have more show gardens than ever and a garden theatre too – it’s so important to constantly re-invent this event without compromising all the elements that returning visitors have come to expect.”

The Holker Estate which hosts the event is owned by Lord and Lady Cavendish.

Lord Cavendish said: “This event is now in its 19th year and we are always delighted that many of our visitors choose to return year after year. The Festival is a real collaborative effort and we are very proud of the revenue it generates for a wide variety of businesses in the area.

“We are very conscious of the ‘draw’ of such an event, pulling visitors from across the region and hope that it continues to do so for many years to come.”

l The Evening Mail has five pairs of tickets, each worth almost £100, to give away.

They include entry to the show, a two-course table service lunch, afternoon tea and access to the hospitality marquee for the day.

They can be used on either the Saturday or the Sunday.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply collect the four tokens which will be printed in the Evening Mail between today and Saturday.

Details of what to do with the tokens will be printed in Saturday’s edition.
