Port Eliot Flower Show

Port Eliot Flower Show

Port Eliot Flower Show

2010 will see an eclectic and colourful new area added to the festival – The Flower Show, in the Orangery gardens – curated and designed by internationally acclaimed production designer, Michael Howells.

Paying homage to the traditional British summer flower show but infusing it with Michael’s own unique style and magic, the Port Eliot Festival Flower Show will feature demonstrations, displays, music, art and fashion – all on a horticultural, floral theme – with everything from flower arranging classes to floral hat trimming workshops with Stephen Jones; Todd Longstaffe-Gowan on ephemeral indoor gardening in Regency London to expert insight, entertainment and inspiration from ‘The Tulip Lady’ Anna Pavord, Eden Project founder and visionary Tim Smit and artist and designer Kitty Arden – not to mention exceptional tea, cakes and exhibitions in the Orangery tearoom.

Working across the worlds of film and fashion, Michael Howells has realised some of the most spectacular and ambitious sets of recent times – designing numerous sets for John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Mario Testino and Nick Knight, while his film credits include Bright Young Things, Shackleton, About Time Too and Miss Julie with Mike Figgis. He has also worked with the Royal Court, the Royal Ballet and the Rambert Ballet, as well as dusting Port Eliot’s stages, tents – and even train station – with his creative genius in recent years.

More details will be announced soon.
