One exciting addition is the debut of Sophie’s pop-up restaurant, presenting a sit-in dining experience. Sophie’s takes over the venue with a pink and white transformation, and you can enjoy delectable lunch options and a pop-up breakfast.

From other great stalls, visitors can order freshly prepared meals to enjoy at the outdoor seating area or to savour at home. There will also be an indoor takeaway counter filled with spices, packaged foods, and confectionery goods.

The popular Gin Bar returns with a wide range of gin-based creations to delight the senses. Let the flavours of Africa unfold in a journey of unparalleled gin craftsmanship.

In addition to other returning favourites, this year organisers are thrilled to introduce The Garden Café, a new outdoor seating area designed for visitors to grab a coffee, relax and unwind or take a moment to savour a treat while taking a break from all the shopping and idea-inspiring displays.

The East Coast Radio House + Garden Show has created a home, garden and lifestyle expo that provides a local marketplace of inspiration, creativity, innovation, collaboration, demonstrations, entertainment and craftsmanship at its best.
