The BIG Plant Sale – Raising money for the Arts in Pembrokeshire!
The highly-anticipated BIG Plant Sale returns on Saturday 28 April 2018 at the Town Moor, Narberth.
The BIG Plant Sale is one of the most important dates on Pembrokeshire’s gardening calendar, and this year it’s 25 years old! It’s been a much-loved part of the Narberth calendar for so long that the spring in Pembrokeshire wouldn’t be the same without it.
Not only is it an important date in the gardening calendar, it is also hugely important for Span Arts as it helps raises funds for the Narberth-based charity committed to providing performances and arts experiences for people from all over Pembrokeshire. Last year, over 1,000 visitors attended the event over the course of the day, and we hope to attract even more this year.
With it being a hugely successful event, attendees travel from near and far to take advantage of West Wales’ finest plant-sellers, as well as the quality live music, local food and drink, sights, smells, and friendly atmosphere. Expect textiles, floristry, surf wear, a craft area containing a range of selected local designers and makers showing and selling their work, and more. There’s even entertainment for the kids in the form of a bouncy castle and face painting!
The Plant Sale hosts a huge range of growers with an impressive range of flowers, herbs and vegetable plants, as well as specialist stock including bamboos, pond plants, succulents and cacti. The event has been described as “the start of the summer social season” with it being a diverse and fun-packed day for the community, bringing people from all over the three counties to the idyllic Pembrokeshire town.
Span Arts welcomes plant donations for their own stall and garden-related prizes for their Big Green Raffle. Our aim is to raise funds for the organisation by also selling used gardening books! So have a rummage through the backs of your book shelves and spread the word – we are collecting! Drop your second hand, pre-loved gardening books to Span Arts and give someone else the chance to enjoy them!
The charity is always grateful for volunteers to help out with the BIG Plant Sale at every level, so feel free to contact the office on 01834 869323 for more information if you are interested.
With just over three weeks to go until this year’s BIG plant sale, we have a limited amount of stalls still available. Give us a call if you want to book!
