Get your tickets for the Party for Perennial

The annual Party for Perennial, which will take place on Thursday 18 January 2018, is a popular fixture in the New Year calendar for the horticulture trade and an event not to be missed.


This time it will have a more informal feel, with tickets costing just £25, but still promises plenty of fun and chance for networking.

Launching Perennial’s annual HortAid fundraising campaign, the evening is a great opportunity to come together with colleagues and friends while raising money for the only charity dedicated to helping everyone across the industry in times of need.


It takes place in the Flamingo Room at O’Neills in London’s West End and tickets include a glass of bubbly on arrival, as well as delicious food and live music until late.

There is an exciting line up of raffle prizes to be won, including lunch and a private garden tour at Rosemary Verey’s garden at Barnsley House; a spa day at the Spread Eagle Hotel in Midhurst; and a package that includes lunch at the Ivy Soho Brasserie and two West End theatre tickets.

Anita Bates, Perennial’s Director of Marketing and Development comments: “The Party for Perennial offers a chance to get together for a fun night during a slower time in the horticultural season, but it is also an important event for Perennial in terms of fundraising.


"Following feedback from previous events, we have decided to make it slightly more informal, with a lower ticket price and more of a focus on allowing people to catch up with friends.


"We will soon be announcing details of a black tie event later in the year, for those who enjoy more formal occasions. Don’t miss out on joining us and your colleagues from across the trade for what promises to be an excellent evening.”

All money raised through ticket sales and the raffle will help support all UK horticulturists and their families, who come to Perennial for help. 


As the only charity that helps individuals working in and retired from all sectors of the horticulture industry, Perennial is a lifeline for people that have nowhere else to turn.

Many thanks to the Party sponsors for making the event possible, in particular headline sponsor London Stone, as well as the HTA, the Landscape Show, Bulrush Horticulture and Bulldog Tools, and Horticulture Week as media partner.
