Shrewsbury Flower Show

TBC AUGUST Stay at the Raven away from the hustle and bustle and jump on the bus to Shrewsbury to immerse yourself in a flower show which has such historic origins and is situated in the beautiful quarry beside the River Severn…

‘Annual Fairs were organised, such as the Gooseberry and Carnation fairs to attract country people into the Town to sell their surplus produce but these fairs often degenerated into excess drinking and occasions of debauchery and quickly got out of hand.

The burgesses, craft guilds and freemen of the Town quickly began to organise the events and the Shropshire Horticultural Society held its first Show in 1857’
