RHS Festival Manager Gemma Lake said: 'This year is gearing up to be a show-stopping event. It will be packed with immersive experiences and activities so that all our festival-goers not only get to enjoy the beauty of plants, flowers and gardens but also have a fantastic summer’s day out with lots to get involved in, so there really is something for everyone.'
