Visitors have been pouring in to see the display in the marquee and the adjacent two and a half acres of trial fields with row upon row of dahlias of all shapes and sizes.

The festival is also raising money for the charity Greenfingers by offering numerous additional events including a guess the weight of the cake competition and a staff raffle.
