GREEN SQUARES AND SECRET GARDENS 2018

SAVE THE DATE!

 

The gardens and squares will open this year on

 

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th JUNE 2018.

 

All indications are that we will welcome even more people visiting the gardens in 2018.

 

Tickets will once again be sold outside the East Village Cafe under the arch in Boyces Avenue Clifton village as well as in some gardens on the day. Apart from the open gardens, the Tree Trail in St Andrew’s and the ‘Points of Interest’ leaflet will also be repeated. There will also be a new, easy-to-read map in response to the feedback from last year's visitors. The website has been optimised to display better on mobile phones and ipads as our stats from last year's event showed that lots of you used these to access information about the event over the open garden weekend.

 

Several gardens will offer entertainment as well as refreshments with live music, history stands, plant sales and more and we will be welcoming a few new gardens too. Details will be published on this website soon to watch this space!

 

The ticket price this year is £5.00 per person for the two days. (Under 16 free). Groups of 8 visitors or more are able to buy tickets in advance at a discounted price of £3.00 per person. You will find full details on the TICKETS page by clicking the link on the tool bar above.

 

Come and discover the diverse and beautiful private and communal gardens hidden behind closed gates and not normally open to the public.

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature.

To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul”.
