After attending Shrewsbury Flower Show since the age of five I have always been proud that an event like this takes place in our home town.
However a word of warning to people wishing to visit and attend the flower show. The ticket prices are well over priced for what is actually at the show, and although it's successful the 2014 ticket price of £26 per adult is to be frowned upon.
I would not bother eating in the show itself as food and drink prices are very expensive. You would be best walking into the nearby town centre which takes five minutes.
Sadly there is a trend at the show to have too much show jumping on in the arena and many people dislike this. Ten years ago the arena program was much better.
By all means visit Shrewsbury it's a fab place, but if you are coming just to attend the flower show, you may need to take out a bank loan...
