Lancashire Life - - Arts & Events -

About 8,000 peo­ple en­joyed an amaz­ing ar­ray of dis­plays at the award-win­ning Chor­ley Flower Show. Vis­i­tors from across the North West and be­yond de­scended upon Ast­ley Park to see the coun­try’s top ex­hibitors and en­joy a great day out.

Fa­mous faces dropped by to take a look around with co­me­dian Dave Spikey drop­ping in to sup­port the pop­u­lar show that at­tracted ex­hibitors from as far away as Corn­wall.

Coun­cil­lor Alis­tair Bradley, Leader of Chor­ley Coun­cil, said: ‘It was an­other fan­tas­tic show with so many peo­ple com­ment­ing on how much they en­joyed it with lots of first-time vis­i­tors who said they were so im­pressed with Chor­ley that they will be com­ing back.

‘We had some re­ally wet weather with fore­cast­ers say­ing about half a month’s rain­fall fell in a day but it didn’t stop peo­ple com­ing to sup­port the show and I’d like to thank ev­ery­one who came along.’
