It is with some considerable delight that we announce that there will be a British Shohin Bonsai show in 2016, run in conjunction with our friends at Sutton Bonsai Society.
Entitled Spirit of Shohin 2016, the show will be held over the weekend on April 2nd and 3rd 2016, and will offer members and public a chance to see some of the foremost shohin bonsai in the UK.
And even more excitingly, the venue for the event will be RHS Wisley Garden in Surrey.
It is something of a feather in our cap to be able to run our show at such a prestigious location and a large thank-you must go to Andy and his colleagues at Sutton Bonsai Society for making it all possible.
Plans for the event are in a very early stage of development, but the organising team are already working towards making this a memorable occasion.
Wisley Garden is no stranger to bonsai. In addition to the Herons Bonsai Walk opened in 2012, our friends at Sutton Bonsai Society held their recent club show there, and the reports back indicate that we can expect a considerable interest from the general public as well as the bonsai supporters. Holding the show in a far more public arena will bring its challenges, but the pluses far outweigh the negatives. It will certainly be a challenge we will relish.
Over the next few months, as plans progress, we will bring you further details of the show. In the meantime, please put the date in your diary and pass it on to your bonsai friends and acquaintances.
