Orchid Festival

Orchid Festival


A day out in East Yorkshire at the Burton Agnes Orchid Festival; a celebration of the beauty and diversity of orchids. Visit the Elizabethan Great Hall to see magnificent displays of vibrantly coloured and gently fragrant flowers, wander around the stalls offering the widest selection of plants in the area and seek specialist advice from a local orchid expert. After marveling at the displays of orchids, wander in the woodland walk to catch the final days of the snowdrop opening, visit the church, courtyard shops and café serving home cooked meals.

HORTICULTURAL beauty will once more colour the lawns and halls of Burton Agnes Hall as this year's Orchid Festival bursts gloriously to life this weekend. The creation of the green-fingered Cunliffe-Lister family, the festival brings magnificent orchid displays, talks, slide-shows and trade stalls to the Elizabethan Great Hall this Saturday and Sunday. Simon Cunliffe-Lister said: “I hope you will be captivated and inspired by the vivid colours and scents of orchids in our flamboyant displays.” Designed in 1598 by Elizabeth I’s master mason Robert Smithson, the timeless Tudor hall has long since gained a reputation for its gardens, and was crowned HHA Christies Garden of the Year in 2005.
