As the nights draw in and with Christmas just around the corner, the Glendale Agricultural Society (GAS) are inviting those with a passion for bouquets to their new Festive Floral Demonstration.
This pre-Christmas warmer, held on Tuesday 4th December 2018, will take place in Lowick Village Hall at 1.30pm, with prosecco on arrival. Following after the demonstration, there will be a sumptuous serving of afternoon tea, along with an abundance of good company.
A brand-new event for the society this year, the Floral Demonstration will be presented by Christine Ogle from Lavender’s Blue Florists. Specialist in the floral industry for over 25 years and based in the market town of Morpeth in Northumberland, Christine will be revealing her secrets and tips for the perfect festive bouquet.
This afternoon is one of several activities the society holds for its members during the year, including of course the ever-popular Bank Holiday Glendale Show, which was held back in August. Tickets are £15 each and can be purchased from the Show Office by calling 01668 283868 or emailing at: [email protected].
Commenting ahead of the event, Rachael Tait, Secretary of the Glendale Agricultural Society, said:
“We are very proud to introduce the Floral Art Demonstration and Afternoon Tea to our curriculum of activities this year. It is fair to say that the Floral Art Display is one of the countless key highlights of Glendale Show and I feel this will not only benefit previous entrants who are looking for tips and advice, but also encourage newcomers who are interested in learning this skill.
This will be an opportunity to learn the fine art of floristry, and a chance to join the society and experience for yourself just one of the many benefits of becoming a member. The afternoon is open to both members and non-members of GAS and places are allocated on a first come first served basis, so it is advised to book early.”
Active for over 125 years, Glendale Agricultural Society stages the hugely successful Glendale Show attracting over 12,000 visitors each year and has now become one of the leading highlights of the Northumbrian agricultural calendar. As well as hosting the multi-award-winning educational Children’s Countryside Day which this year attracted over 1650 children.
