Beckenham Place Park Show

1 August @ 12:00 - 19:00

Free

We are pleased to announce the fourth annual Beckenham Place Park Show.

Come along and enjoy our friendly, community-focused flower show and art exhibition for free. This is an all-inclusive event and we encourage all to have a go and enter something, so start planning, creating and growing your entries!

Behind the Mansion, you can expect a summer fete atmosphere with stalls relating to nature, flowers and the park. There will also be delicious food traders and an art exhibition inside the Mansion on the theme of Park Life, all by local artists.

As last year’s attendees have come to expect, there will be a marquee containing flower show entries which is open to all, a fun dog show at 3pm and free arts & crafts activities for children with live music throughout the day.

You can also pick up refreshments from the Mansion bar.
