It isn't too late to get involved!
How you choose to get involved is up to you: residents, businesses, pubs, community groups and schools are all invited. There are no rules: the only limit is your imagination and creativity and what you do may include, but not be limited to: Your front garden, a window box, a display in your window …Platinum Jubilee or royal theme optional!
Whatever you decide to do, please let us know: send us a photo, or ask us to come and take one. We'll add your photos to an online gallery for all to see.
The Festival is just for fun, so no rules, judging or prizes
Whether you do it for the Queen, yourself, the bees, your street or your community, we really hope you’ll join us.
Start planning and, more importantly, start planting!
Marlborough in Bloom
The Bloomers have taken the difficult decision to take a break. Like many of us, the members of the Marlborough in Bloom Committee struggled to keep things going during and after 2020 because of Covid-19, but it disbanded on a high with another Gold for the town.
This may not be goodbye forever, but there will be no entry into the South West in Bloom competition this year. We’ve selected July for this festival because that is usually when the RHS judges have paid us a visit, and to keep the Jubilee celebrations going beyond the June bank holiday. We hope it will ensure that we can all continue to admire and be proud of Marlborough, in bloom.
