Good Food Show and Gardeners World Live Competition

have one family pass for Sunday the 17th of June to see both these
fantastic events in the NEC in Birmingham. 
There will be plenty for children to do to get them more interested in
gardening and cooking. Both handy
skills for the future, going on the state of our tomato plants I think we need
all the help we can get! Fortunately
our sunflowers are wearing better, although that reminds me they do need to be
watered again! And don’t get me started
on my cooking… luckily hubbie is doing a sterling job or I think we would be
back on a diet of super noodles and burnt sausages like at University.

adult tickets costing £19.75 each this is a lovely competition to win. I am so excited to be going for the first
time this year. We love food, so will
no doubt be going round drooling at anything tasty being exhibited!

The Gardeners’ Green area of the Show
sounds perfect for the boys with special appearances from children’s book
“Garden Crafts for Children” author Dawn Isaac. Dawn has arts and craft
activities planned including vegetable and herb gardening, growing projects and
simple crafts to keep children happy and learning. I know my boys will also love hearing about the guide dogs and
how they are trained in one of the two daily sessions. Also again being animal mad at the BBC
Gardeners’ World Live my two will love seeing the chickens, ducks and rabbits
from Feathers, who build animal runs.

If you are travelling with a baby you can
even take advantage of the parenting room if you need some peace and
tranquillity from the show to change or feed your little ones (the room even
has complimentary nappies…!).

With so much entertainment, live
demonstrations and opportunities to shop for exclusive gardening and cooking
supplies, I just wish I did not have to wait till June. Children under 6 are free to attend on any
day of the shows (13th – 17th) but up to two children
under 18 are free with a paying adult, for either the 16th or 17th
of June, billed the family weekend, so really is the best time to plan your
visit if you are looking for amusement for them.

I might even get the chance to see a
celebrity in action, as James Martin; the Hairy Bikers; John Torode; Gregg
Wallace; MasterChef Champion 2012 – Shelina Permaloo; Olly Smith; Michael
Caines and local Chef Glynn Purnell will all be cooking live and Monty Don;
Alan Titchmarsh; Carol Klein and Joe Swift will be giving tips on how to grow
your own (note to self: must pay lots of attention my tomato plants deserve

  1. I could use some tips and ideas for my allotment, as much fun as growing weeds are I would like to know how to successfully grow veggies too!

  2. I want to give the tickets to my mum and dad as a present.
    Dad was made redundant very recently and nothing cheers him up quite like food and drink, so this is the perfect solution!

  3. I'd love to go in the hope of seeing James Martin, love his cooking, and love him even more! 😉   love the fact that i can also see the gardens and what i can grow to eat ourselves. 

  4. This local show is one I'd love to visit.  I'm a really keen gardener (not good but very keen), I've also got an allotment so this really is a show that I'd love to go to.  Of course, you can't grow all this produce without cooking it . . . so the Good Food section of the show would also be a must for me!

  5. I'd love to go to The Good Food show as I'd love to take my Mum as she's a keen cook and loves cookery programmes.

  6. I'd really like to start cooking more complex things and going to a show like this would really point me in the right direction

  7. I am really in to gardening and two years ago My husband gave me tickets to Gardener's World Live for my birthday – it was the best show I have ever been to, so inspirational and I learnt so much too!  I would absolutely love to go again!

  8. Hiya xx
    We're all foodies here, but I am lactose and gluten intolerant (but still have a slice of poorly made cake) so want to see what's happening with gluten free stuff and if I can get any tips on how to be a better cook. I have never been to the good food show. We have Rosie now and I want to be able to cook well for her. xx
