Two TV gardeners will be helping ourburystedmunds’ popular Whitsun Fayre bloom this spring as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Katie Rushworth, from ITV’s Love Your Garden, and Joe Swift, from BBC 2’s Gardeners World, will be talking about their work and answering gardening questions in Bury town centre over the Whitsun Bank Holiday Weekend.

The event is free to attend and there will be a multitude of attractions and entertainment on offer.

Angel Hill will host the motorsports show which was part of the event for the first time last year, there will be fairground rides, the ever popular urban beach as well as a range of stalls and animals at the mini–farm.

Mark Cordell, chief executive of ourburystedmunds, said: “You could say we are going back to our garden roots with this year’s anniversary event.

“We’re focusing on flowers, plants and gardening and with Katie and Joe’s help on both days.

“I’m also very pleased that so many other elements have been introduced to this event since the Business Improvment District took it over.”

Some stall space is still available to any gardening related exhibitors who want to attend and stage slots for floristry may still be available.
