Summer of love planned for Knowsley Flower Show

PHOTO: Community group Knitwits have already started creating lots of handmade decorations to bring a large splash of colour to the 50 Summers of Love themed Knowsley Flower Show and Feelgood Festival.

FEELGOOD Festival and Knowsley Flower Show set to draw crowds of thousands to Knowsley with free family fun this August. Summer looks set to hot up in Knowsley, with its 2 best loved annual events, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, in 1967.

You can expect lots of colourful fun at the Knowsley Feelgood Festival and Flower Show in August 2017; including some spectacular knitted décor brightening the trees at Court Hey Park thanks to the handiwork of community group Knitwits. Both events take place, as always, at Court Hey Park, just off the M62 in Huyton and are completely free to attend.

The Feelgood Festival, on Saturday, 5 August 2017, from 1pm to 5pm, is growing year on year in popularity since its launch 3 years ago. Packed with activities, performances and experiences to help improve your health and wellbeing, the festival has something for everyone. It's a chance to try mindful yoga, pick up some relaxation techniques, try some fitness and sporting activities, try your hand at drawing and painting, enjoy some complementary therapies and even take part in a family bike ride on the day.

There'll be lots of laughs with the Comedy Trust, who'll be offering hilarious 'Feeling Funny' workshops, exploring the ways in which laughter and comedy has the power to make you feel good.

Lush Spa Liverpool will also be there, with some fantastic complementary taster treatments and a little bit of Lush magic, whilst Boots pharmacy will be on hand with both health advice and a makeup artist offering amazing summer makeovers.

Children are invited to dress up in 60's or 70's fashion and join in the Summer of Love fancy dress parade around the site at 1pm to get the event off to a fantastic start; and there'll be great prizes on offer for the best costumes.  Register now through Knowsley's Children's Centres or call:- 0151 443 5749 for an entry form.

Knowsley's Children's Centres will also be at the festival, promoting oral health, giving baby massage demonstrations and offering storytime sessions for the very youngest festival goers.

Then, on Sunday, 6 August 2017, you can expect even more flower power than usual as the renowned Knowsley Flower Show returns, from 11am until 5pm, with crowds expected to flock from all over the North West.

At the show's heart is always the breathtaking floral marquee, bursting with potentially prize winning fruit, vegetables and flowers.

Get growing and you could be entering your pride and joy into one of the 100 categories, suitable for both novices and experienced growers alike.

Download the schedule of classes now from the Flower Show's website and view the special classes themed around 50 Summers of Love.

Certainly, keen gardeners will love the many plant and seed stalls offering great value, and the chance to get expert tips at the Gardener's Question Time event.

As usual there will also be the rich programme of family entertainment, including dog displays in the main arena, live music inspired by Sgt Peppers' Lonely Heart Club album, Geraud's large farmers' market, circus skills, glitter faces and a health and wellbeing zone plus lots of trade stands.

Both events are completely free, and are part of a wider programme of more than 60 Summer of Love events taking place across the City Region this summer.

You can find out more about the other events online.  Make sure you take a look at the Knowsley Flower Show website, which gives details of the free shuttle buses in and around Knowsley and 'like' the show on Facebook for all the latest news. So, get the dates in your diary and look forward to the Summer of Love in Knowsley.
