Spring Food, Home and Garden Show - Ripon Cathedral


Spring Food, Home and Garden Show

Welcome in spring at Ripon Cathedral’s Food, Home & Garden Show on Saturday April 13; a day filled with delicious food, inspiring home furnishings, stunning garden accessories and plants.

March 7, 2024

Exciting New Additions and Popular Favourites

New for 2024 are garden-themed discussions and demonstrations by local experts in the library; perhaps acquire a new skill or refine an existing one. 

The cathedral will be bustling with over 70 fabulous stalls, showcasing a mix of local and independent traders, including familiar favourites and fresh faces. Explore an array of gardening products, homewares, local delicacies, and various children’s activities including a mobile petting farm featuring spring animals from Riggmoor Reindeer. Test your luck with games organised by the choristers of Ripon Cathedral Choir, including a chocolate tombola and spin the wheel. Listen to live music performances throughout the day are all included in the £5 admission fee (under 16s free). 

Don’t miss out on the cathedral’s plant stall offering affordable plants and the pop-up café serving pulled pork sandwiches, homemade cakes, and hot beverages all day long. 

Canon Matthew Pollard, Canon Chancellor said: “We’re really looking forward to greeting old friends and new from across the region and beyond.  Come along, celebrate the new life and hope the Easter season offers, and enjoy the entertainment and retail opportunities of the cathedral’s Spring Show.”

The show is generously sponsored by The Ripon Inn, a part of the Inn Collection Group; this beautiful Edwardian building reopened in 2023 after a significant refurbishment and is now open to guests, carrying on a tradition that spans over a century. 

We’re delighted to also welcome new event partners for the year Linley & Simpson. The dedicated team of estate and letting agents help local homeowners and renters every step of the way, and we’re extremely grateful for their ongoing support of our events. 

The Spring Show is a fantastic day out to celebrate springtime, with something for all the family and raises vital funds for the mission, heritage conservation, music and education programme at Ripon Cathedral.
