A celebrity gardener will be in Hatfield on Friday at an event celebrating the best of British craft making.

The event will be opened tomorrow (Thursday) by Welwyn Hatfield mayor Howard Morgan.

It is the 40th year the heritage event has been held, with organisers promising an exciting spectacle.

Robin Younger, the show’s organiser, said: “To celebrate our 40th Anniversary we are planning a craft extravaganza with both contemporary and heritage craft of the highest quality and will welcome highly-skilled designer-makers from across the UK.

“There will be plenty of new features and this year we are delighted to welcome the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, who further British craftsmanship through grants and education and The Prince’s Trust, which has inspired and changed the lives of budding craftsmen and women across the country.”

It runs from 10am to 5pm each day between tomorrow and Sunday.

Tickets on the door cost £9.50 for adults, £9 for seniors, £4.50 for children, or family tickets cost £23.
