The Quarry hosts the Flower Show (run by the Shropshire Horticultural Association) every year in mid-August on a Friday and Saturday, with displays of over three million blooms. The event attracts upwards of 30,000 visitors. The whole of the Quarry is taken up by marquees, an arena for music and other entertainment, and multiple stalls selling everything from food to gardening equipment to arts and crafts and local produce. Both days are rounded off with a 30-minute spectacular fireworks display over the river.
