IoW Spring Garden Show this month

Visitors heading to the Isle of Wight (IoW) in the coming weeks might like to head along to the annual IoW Spring Garden Show, which will be taking place at the Robin Hill Adventure Park & Gardens.

Running across the weekend of April 27th and 28th, the show promises to be a real treat for green-fingered enthusiasts visiting to the island, with a wide array of showpiece gardens and many experts on hand to offer advice on the best way for home growers to achieve similar results at their own properties.

Other attractions of the garden show will include a number of events as part of the Finest Flavours Cookery Theatre Programme - including the Grand Chilli Challenge, Hamilton's Fine Foods with Andy Gustar and the Junior Four Season Cooking Academy.

The Sunflower Arena Programme will also showcase an array of activities for visitors, such as the Randini Punch & Judy Show, a display of falconry, shows from the IoW Theatre Train Performers, children's entertainer Dazzle the Pirate and live music from the Quintisle musical quintet.

Wine tasting will also play a big part in this year's celebrations, with seminars and events being put on the Island Wine Company.

IoW Garden Show will open to the public from 10:00 BST each day and entry will cost £12.50 for a full weekend ticket for adults and £10.50 for concessions.

Meanwhile, comedian and actor Alan Davies is set to perform a series of gigs at this year's Isle of Arts Festival in Newport, marking Mr Davies' return to the stand-up circuit with his new show Life is Pain.

According to the Independent on Sunday: "If you like the TV Alan you'll love the live Alan. And if you don't like the TV Alan, you’ll love the live Alan even more."ADNFCR-3083-ID-801576612-ADNFCR
