As we are well into the month of May it won’t be long until the Chelsea Flower Show is with us. This year sees it take place from 21st to 25th May.
This year it celebrates its centenary.
The Chelsea Flower Show has been held in the grounds of the Chelsea Hospital every year since 1913, apart from gaps during the two World Wars.
For the centenary of the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, many of the show gardens are promoting a greener, brighter future by highlighting sustainable living, ways to preserve Britain’s horticultural heritage and the protection of some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
It used to be Britain’s largest flower show (it has now been overtaken by Hampton Court), but is still the most prestigious. From the beginning it has contained both nursery exhibits and model gardens. Every year there have been exhibits from foreign countries as well as from Britain.
Today sees Event Hire delivering furniture and equipment to Lord’s Cricket Ground. This is for the England v New Zealand 1st Investec Test Match which takes place on 16th – 20th May.
Lord’s Cricket Ground, generally known as Lord’s, is a cricket venue in St John’s Wood, London. Named after its founder, Thomas Lord, it is owned by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and is the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), the European Cricket Council (ECC) and, until August 2005, the International Cricket Council (ICC). Lord’s is widely referred to as the “home of cricket” and is home to the world’s oldest sporting museum.
Yesterday saw the arrival in Portofino, Italy, of JOHN WALKER & SONS VOYAGER, a glamorous 1920s-style sailing yacht, whose journey reimagines the epic ocean voyages that took Johnnie Walker from the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world. The arrival of the yacht marks the start of a campaign to celebrate the launch of a new rare triple malt from the world’s leading Scotch Whisky house, JOHN WALKER & SONS ODYSSEY.
Today and tomorrow, the luxury yacht will host a series of high-profile events designed to celebrate Portofino’s story of progress over the last century and recognise a series of Italian ‘Game Changers’ – influencers, thinkers and celebrities who embody the pioneering spirit and vision of the Walker family.
Portofino, an icon of Italian exclusivity, style, elegance and heritage, has been chosen as the first destination on a European tour that will see JOHN WALKER & SONS VOYAGER host exclusive events at the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix – world stages for luxury brands and events – as well as Athens, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, Hamburg and Copenhagen. Docking in Edinburgh in August this yacht will return to the brand home of Scotland, where the John Walker & Sons story began almost two centuries ago.
YouTuber stopstopitstoofunny has posted this video of the world’s ultimate bottle opener in action. Neatly hinged so that that it requires one long push to flip off the caps.

Manufactured in transparent polycarbonate, the Banquo chair will provide a stunning visual impact to your event.
The name Banquo originates from another ghost that appeared in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Banquo is a character in William Shakespeare’s 1606 play Macbeth. In the play, he is at first an ally to Macbeth (both are captains in the King’s army) and they are together when they meet the Three Witches. After prophesying that Macbeth will become king, the witches tell Banquo that he will not be king himself, but that his descendants will be. Later, Macbeth in his lust for power sees Banquo as a threat and has him murdered; Banquo’s son, Fleance, escapes. Banquo’s ghost returns in a later scene, causing Macbeth to react with alarm during a public feast – Wiki
