Lambeth Country Show: flower show report vol 1.

Sunday 19 July 2009

Wicked flower arrangement Lambeth Country ShowAs promised the Whingers bring you an update from the Lambeth Country Show which takes place this weekend in Brockwell Park.

The big excitement of this year for theatre lovers and tolerators is the West End Musical themed class in the Lambeth Horticultural Society’s flower show.

Look away now if you don’t want to know who won. Otherwise:There were four entries in the class and as there are only prizes that means there has to be a loser which tured out to be this creation celebrating My Fair Lady:

Contrary to what you may think the Whingers are no experts in the field of flower arranging but we were slightly surprised that this bold creation paying homage to Wicked only got third prize. Still, that’s what you get for taking a third rate musical as your inspiration.

Second prize went to this Cats creation which has two cats in it.

But the first prize went to this Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which contains lots of colours a pile of hat boxes and a card which was obviously written from memory as it’s not the title of the show and should – in our humble opinions – have therefore been disqualified.

  1. Martin Baker Says:

    I think that’s one of the most bizarre sets of photos I’ve ever seen. Who’d have thought that musical theatre and flower arranging could be such great partners!


  2. How bizarre that the “Joseph” arrangement didnt include any Croton or Coleus, both known colloquially as “Joseph’s Coat”.

    And I disagree with your opinion about “Wicken” being a third rate musical. You’d rate it above “Whistle down the wind” or “Sister Act”?
