Returning to the city for 2022, this year’s Manchester Flower Show takes place in June, coinciding with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.


The Royal Exchange is taking part in the Flower Show Trail and embracing the Platinum Jubilee theme, its spectacular floral arches at the entrances to The Royal Exchange arcade will be themed in patriotic red, white, and blue, and adorned with décor that denotes a regal street party.


Throughout the flower show, which takes place over the four-day bank holiday weekend (2nd-5th June), Manchester city centre will be bedecked with a botanical trail that features all manner of fresh and dried floral displays.


In addition to its aptly-themed arches, The Royal Exchange has teamed up with Verdure Floral Design to create an incredible installation inside the Arcade as part of the Manchester Flower Show trail. Verdure Floral Design, who provide exceptional flowers for any occasion, will use a selection of seasonal fresh and dried flowers, including delphiniums, roses, peonies, spray roses, hydrangeas, alliums, pampas and agapanthus. A range of plants will also feature, including assorted orchids and succulents.


Titled ‘The Crown Jewels’, the display will include a throne-inspired chair, to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, that visitors are encouraged to sit on in order to be in with a chance of winning a £100 voucher to spend at Verdure.  To be entered into the competition, visitors need to post a picture (or pictures!) of themselves on the ‘Crown Jewels’ throne and to tag The Royal Exchange Manchester and Verdure Floral Design.


There will also be other activities happening around The Royal Exchange, including a face painter and solo saxophonist in the Arcade on the afternoons of Thursday and Friday (2nd and 3rd June) so be sure to pop down and get your face decorated with the union flag, flowers or whatever you choose!


Several shops at The Royal Exchange are also joining in the celebrations over the bank holiday:


Molton Brown will be dressing their store with dried and fresh flowers, plus there’s a free ceramic dish when you spend £90 or over; Jenny Jones Jewellery will be offering cupcakes to customers and a 10% discount on all platinum pieces purchased in their store over the bank holiday weekend; L’Occitane will be handing out cake and prosecco to customers, plus there’s a free gift when you spend £65 or over; Fjallravan on Old Bank Street is offering a free gift for purchases of £100 or over.
