Spring is coming!

Herald of spring is back. This year’s theme is Mother Nature and there’s also a nod to the 400th anniversary of the discovery of Epsom Salts.HeraldofSpring2018

The fair, an annual event since the 1970s, has, in recent years, returned to its roots as a celebration of local horticulture and spring flowers.

For this year's festival, visitors will be treated to beautiful floral displays from Ashtead Park Garden Centre and local flower arranging clubs, presentations from local countryside groups, including the Beekeepers, and a chance to visit the What's On In Epsom Mother’s day Market for your Mother’s Day gifts, plus much more!

On display will be entries for this year's scarecrow competition from the borough’s participating primary schools and youth groups. The entries will be judged at the event by the Mayor of Epsom & Ewell.

Children will be able to enjoy a wide range of activities on the day – courtesy of the Rainbow Leisure Centre and Hobbledown and the opportunity to meet the Born Free charity. Bourne Hall Museum kids club will be explaining about the significance of Ewell’s spring and its association with Roman gods.

Free entry

Herald of Spring is in association with Ashtead Park Garden Centre and supported by Hobbledown, What's On In Epsom, Better and Bourne Hall Museum Kids Club.
