The Show will be in both RHS Halls (http://www.rhs.org.uk/Shows-Events/RHS-London-Flower-Shows/Getting-to-the-shows ) and there is much interest to exhibit from Europe and around the world already.  A list of potential exhibitors is being put together.  If you are interested in exhibiting at the show please initially contact Clare Hermans (Clare.Jepson@btinternet.com).  Official invitations will be sent out by the RHS later this year.

There will also be displays of Botanical Art and tours of the RHS Lindley Library.



Registration will be split into three distinct packages: A ‘Science’ Package’ (at £70.00), a ‘Horticultural Package’ (at £70.00) and a ‘Show Package’ (at £50.00): all packages will give full access to the Show, the Preview, early entry to the Show, delegate lounge with refreshments, judging if qualified, opportunity to book visits, tours & Gala Dinner and either access to the Science lectures at RBG Kew, the horticultural lectures at Vincent Square or just the show.  For the very keen ones there will be a ‘Full Package’ (at £130.00) giving access to all lectures.  Day tickets for the Show and partner registration (at £35.00) will be available.  Please book early as lecture space will be limited.  These early-bird rates will increase substantially on 1st December.
