Artists In Bloom


Artists in Bloom is a Call to amateur artists of all ages

Essentially Local Artists in Bloom

Britain in Bloom is a nationwide gardening competition that keeps cities, towns and villages in bloom.

Every year Stony Stratford and Wolverton & Greenleys in Bloom along with many village in Bloom groups make the towns, villages and surrounding areas look beautiful.


Support the amazing floral and community achievements that the teams bring by creating a piece of artwork that reflects their excellent work.

Your picture, sculpture or model should reflect our theme:

Saving our Planet

This theme is so important and it relates to the aims of Britain in Bloom. Think about how we can and do our part to save our planet. Keep a focus on the local community and the environment we live in.

We can’t wait to see work you enter into Artists in Bloom Competition
About the Volunteers

Stony Stratford in Bloom volunteers are passionate about making the area even more beautiful; greening the streets and estates with colourful flowers and herbs. It’s all about the community and for many years the national awards have reflected their efforts

Wolverton and Greenleys in Bloom volunteers and residents transform the parish area, making it look blooming marvellous. They too do everything they can to involve the local community. This year they’ve decided to carry on with making the town look beautiful but they are not applying for the national competition.

Around the villages, residents are equally as active in their efforts to green and bring floral colour to the spaces.
