Join us Over the Road at this year’s Goodwood Revival where we will be taking our National Trust Mottisfont greenhouse to this prestigious event that reminisces in the golden era of the Goodwood Motor Circuit, between 1948 and 1966.
With an extraordinary display of vintage fashion, cars and motorcycles, we will be bringing an element of horticulture to the show with our traditional greenhouse. Situated in the heart of the Revival period and at the centre of all the excitement our stand 354, will celebrate the concept of plot to plate with a floral themed tea party. (Of course we had to include Britain’s best revival beverage, the cup of tea).
This year’s floral theme will be woven throughout the stand with our Mottisfont greenhouse as a beautiful backdrop. Positioned adjacent to the greenhouse will be a dining table laden, ready for feasting, featuring produce grown inside the greenhouse and from the surrounding raised beds.
Inside the greenhouse will be a nod toward Victory Gardens. Such gardens commonly started as dedicated fruit, vegetable or herb gardens, planted at private residences or public gardens to reduce the pressures on food supply and rations, particularly during World War II; however, this continued following on from the war. Leading up to the Revival, the amount of vegetable allotments had doubled to around 1,400,000, proving how valuable these gardens were in the war efforts and the following restoration of Britain’s spirits.
Come and visit us and immerse yourself in the Goodwood Revival spirit Over the Road on stand 354. Book your tickets here.
