Mr Bloom to Perform Stage Show at Southport Flower Show!

CHILDREN'S TV star Mr Bloom is to take a break from his famous nursery to meet visitors at this year's Southport Flower Show. The talented performer, who entertains millions of young viewers on CBeebies, will bring his interactive stage show to the seaside festival. Mr Bloom will stage 2 interactive performances during Southport's Super Kids Saturday, featuring songs, stories and games which will delight visitors of all ages. There will also be 'Make and Take' workshops throughout the day where fans can turn their hand to decorating funky gardening hats.

Ray Roukin, General Manager from Southport Flower show said:- "Mr Bloom has shared the joy of growing plants and vegetables with millions of young TV viewers so we are delighted to welcome him to the UK's biggest independent flower show. He is the ideal guest for Super Kids Saturday, which builds on Southport's successful programme of events for younger visitors in 2015."

The TV show Mr Blooms Nursery was originally based on a theatre show written by Ben called the Vegetable Nannies. In fact, he brought that show to the Southport Flower Show in 2009 as a walkabout act. In fact it was that very same year he pitched the idea to the BBC and since then it's enjoyed over 5 series, numerous special episodes and awards.Ben said:- "It's a real pleasure to be invited to the Southport Flower Show and I know we're going to have a great show for all the Tiddlers and their families."

There will be hourly 'Make and Take' Mr Bloom workshops during Super Kids, on Saturday, 20 August 2016, from 11am and Mr Bloom will perform two stage shows. Southport Flower Show runs, from Thursday, 18 August to Sunday, 21 August 2016. For more up to date information on the show, celebrity announcements, details and ticket bookings visit:- SouthportFlowerShow.Co.UK.
