We like keeping our visitors up to date on the goings on at our National Show Centres, and this week we thought we’d share a couple of interesting events at our Sunningdale Show Centre in Surrey.
BMW PGA Championship
Golf lovers everywhere will be eagerly awaiting the BMW PGA Championship that takes place at the Wentworth Club in Surrey, which is only 4 miles away from our Sunningdale Show Centre. The competition is part of the European Tour and is an annual event.
The tournament is taking place from 23-28th May, and will see big names like Rory McIlroy competing.
Musical entertainment is also a part the event, making the fun of the days spread into the evenings, with Status Quo playing on the Saturday night, and the Kaiser Chiefs playing on the Sunday night.
Hillier Garden Centre Talk
Our Sunningdale Show Centre is on site with the Sunningdale Hillier Garden Centre, and in June Hillier’s has got well-renowned plantsmen, Roy Lancaster, giving talks to celebrate the publication of his autobiography, ‘My life with plants’.
Lancaster’s book was published on the 23rd March this year, and the talks will give guests the opportunity to hear some of the stories/events in his life that he has written about in the book.
The talks are being held at Hillier Garden Centres across the country in June, with the Sunningdale one being held on Thursday 29th June, as well as one at Newbury Hillier Garden Centre on Thursday 22nd June, where our Newbury Show Centre is located.
Both the BMW PGA Champtionship and the Roy Lancaster talks are very different events, but hopefully they have piqued your interest!
