The RHS has announced that a key floral feature at this year?s Cardiff flower show will be a celebration of Roald Dahl. The show will take place between April the 15th and 17th at the city?s Bute Park.
A spokesperson for the Royal Horticultural Society said: ?In the year that marks 100 years since the iconic, imaginative author was born in Llandaff, the flower show will transport visitors into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl.
?It will give them the chance to get up close to some of his best-loved characters, including a 12ft sculpture of the BFG made out of willow. Visitors will also be able to explore stunning spectacles, such as an enchanted garden, inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and created by award-winning designer Tony Smith.?
They continued: ?Youngsters will be able to take part in the ?Golden Ticket Family Trail? around the showground, as well as join in storytelling with Cardiff Central Library in a gypsy caravan.The annual school wheelbarrow competition – featuring schools across South Wales – will stay in keeping with the Roald Dahl theme.?
