Sefton is set to welcome thousands of visitors to the borough as the Southport Flower Show bursts into colour.

The annual event held at Victoria Park, Southport will be officially opened by entertainer Anton du Beke on Thursday, August 14 and runs until Sunday, August 17.

In 2013 more than 70,000 people attended the spectacle and this year’s Southport Flower Show will celebrate the sights, sounds and scents of South America as the festival adopts a Brazilian theme.

The show forms part of an extensive events calendar across Sefton with the Southport Air Show taking off on September 20/21 and the British Musical Fireworks Championship also held at Victoria Park, Southport from October 3-5.

The Southport Flower Show is Britain’s biggest independent flower show and in 2014 it celebrates its 85th year. For more details and information on buying tickets, visit: www.southportflowershow.co.uk.
