Islington in Bloom 2023
Angel Central Shopping Centre is always buzzing with activity, and the Bank Holiday weekend is no exception.
Get growing with Islington’s beloved gardening competition Islington in Bloom 2023, one of the highlights of the weekend! Whether you’re an experienced gardener or just starting out, this is your chance to contribute to a cleaner, greener, and healthier borough.

·It raises our spirits by making our shared spaces more beautiful.
·It makes Islington more attractive to pollinators and other wildlife.
·It supports biodiversity and helps protect our environment.
·It brings people together and is great for health and wellbeing.
There are fantastic prizes to be won:
·All entrants receive a voucher for a free bag of compost from Camden Garden Centre
·The first, second and third place in each category receive a Garden Centre Gift Voucher
·Everyone receives an award certificate
Simply fill in the new online entry form and submit your photos via the Islington In Bloom webpage here: Islington Council: Islington in Bloom | Islington Council

To find out more about this years competition, meet the judges and get advice on what makes a great entry, come along to Angel Central on Saturday 8th April 11am – 2pm where we’ll be sowing seeds, potting plants, offering advice and celebrating our anniversary.
The fun doesn’t stop there, from Friday through to Monday, you can experience the ultimate puppy experience! You will be joined by a litter of puppies who are all getting ready to venture off to their new homes. Each puppy yoga class will start off with puppy cuddles and individual photo opportunities! You will then carry on with some gentle yoga movements and breaks. The class will finish off with everyone on their backs lying down on their yoga mat with a puppy placed on their tummy for extra relaxation.
Puppy yoga is beneficial for the puppies as it allows them to socialise with new people in different environments, creating less separation anxiety when they officially go off to the new homes. From a wellness perspective, it is great for attendees too as it allows you to take a moment out of the day to unwind and relax from the everyday stresses of work and life.
Tickets are released every Thursday for the following weekend. Please check Puppy Yoga London’s website each week as they may release tickets at different times each week. Puppy Yoga London don’t release tickets further than one week in advance which has allowed all attendees to have a much better chance of getting tickets.
