What's On


Latest news on events:

We are hoping to open the Potting Shed in late July, and we may be able to organise a few birdsong walks at that time.

We  will not be running any of the events listed below, in virtual or real form. We decided to leave the listings online so that you can find out more about the various people we have been working with. You can also find details below about the four charities we are supporting this year.  If you have already booked tickets, your ticket will be valid for future events, or you can apply for a refund by emailing us, or through Eventbrite. 


We have cancelled, not because we cannot allow people in the garden, but because sculpture installation, a complex and lengthy process in which sculptors work closely together, and which was scheduled for mid-April to mid-May, could not take place.
