Come to Settle for a potted celebration of gardening
Leading container manufacturer Stewart Garden is, once again, donating hundreds of planters to the festival. They’ll feature prominently in flowerpot displays adorning the town during the event.
The Vibrant Settle Community Partnership, the voluntary group that organises the Festival, expects the event to attract several thousand visitors to the town – including many people who wouldn’t otherwise come to Settle. The partnership will use money raised by the Festival to fund events and initiatives that promote the town and surrounding area.
The Flowerpot Festival will conclude with the Settle Folk Gathering, which this year runs from Thursday 31 August to Sunday 3 September. The gathering comprises concerts, workshops and sessions in and around Settle.
Of the Settle Flowerpot Festival, Andy Burns, managing director of Stewart, said: “For two months, the beautiful town of Settle is a celebration of colour, fun and activity. There is something for everyone to enjoy, so we – and our intrepid climber, Stewart – are delighted to playing our part and getting involved in this fantastic event.”
