Rosemoor announce three-year sponsorship deal for Garden Flower Show

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Rosemoor, in North Devon, has signed a local three-year sponsorship deal with Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management (AFWM). This follows on from the very successful partnership supporting the 2018 Rosemoor Garden Flower Show.

The deal means that AFWM will be the Headline Sponsor for the next three years at the annual Garden Flower Show in August – the only official RHS Flower Show in the South West. It will bring in valuable funds to increase the content of the show and improve the visitor experience even more than in previous years. 

The deal also includes support for four other major gardening events in 2019 at Rosemoor, starting with The Spring Flower Festival, 16 & 17 March, then the RHS National Rhododendron Show, 27 & 28 April, followed by Rose Weekend, 21 - 23 June, and finally the Apple Festival in October.

Brokering the partnership, Steve Bowyer, Head of Site at RHS Garden Rosemoor, said “I am truly delighted to have the support of AFWM and the three-year deal means that we can invest in the show to increase its size; bring in more exhibits, displays and demonstrations, and generally ensure it continues to be a very enjoyable event for all our visitors.”

John Waldie, Managing Director of AFWM said: “As a keen gardener I am delighted to be working with the RHS.  We have sponsored the Cornwall Garden Society Spring Flower Show for 6 years and, as we are very quickly growing our presence in Devon, working with the RHS is a natural progression for us.  Sponsoring the Rosemoor Flower Show in 2018 was a tremendous success and we are looking forward to coming back for the next three years as well as sponsoring additional events at Rosemoor for 2019.  We have been amazed by the professionalism of the RHS staff at Rosemoor whose attention to detail and excellence is as great as the garden itself.’

The 2019 Rosemoor Garden Flower Show takes place 16 – 18 August and is included in normal garden admission which is free for RHS members.
