Bloom Festival 2019

Keelings return to Bord Bia’s Bloom this June Bank Holiday Weekend. We have presented at Bloom since 2007, and for the second consecutive year, we will raise funds for our charity partner, ISPCC Childline.

Keelings Sensory Symphony

The well-known ‘Love to Grow’ tunnel will be transformed into ‘Keelings Sensory Symphony’ tunnel. Keelings teamed up with Murphy + Sheanon, landscape architecture and horticultural practice, to design a tunnel that is an inspirational experience of fun and exploration through taste, smell, touch, sound and sight. Our senses create multi-sensory memories, which we hold on to as we wander through life’s meandering path, and the more senses we engage, the richer the experience.  

The Keelings Stand

Keelings’ experts will also be on hand to offer useful tips, with a daily schedule of growing workshops throughout the Bank Holiday Weekend and families will also be invited to create nectar rich seed bombs to throw or sow in their own family garden.

Juicy Keelings Strawberries will also be available to sample, and to purchase, at the Keelings stand all weekend at Bloom.
