Open Garden & Secret Craft Fair
15th & 16th June 2013
A fantastic event to keep you entertained next month over the Fathers Day weekend. I will have selection of work available to buy, which will be sitting amongst the flowers in the garden. There is a lovely Facebook page that Janet has put together https://www.facebook.com/events/525196180860915/ full of information about the weekend. Below is a little about the show from Janet:
Our garden is now listed in the esteemed National Gardens Scheme – known to many as the ‘Yellow Book’. We're delighted and will be opening during the first ever National Gardens Festival Weekend over Father’s Day weekend (15-16 June).
But – that’s not all – as well as an open garden, with tea, cakes and plants for sale – we’re holding a Secret Craft Fair. Artists include – Helen Hallows, Craig Fellows, Helen Rhodes, Barry Bulsara, The Apothecary Room and Jennie McCall.
There’ll also be some curious things happening in the shed - Martin Currie, Intergalactic Master at Arms will be presenting short educational talks on types, care of, and the dangers of Rayguns on Saturday. On Sunday Maxine Greer will be putting her Synchronised Swimming Peg Doll display team through their paces.
We're open 12-4pm on the 15th & 16th June. We'll also have a twlight opening, 5-9pm on the 21st June (the longest day) without a craft fair. Admission is £2 on all days with proceeds from garden admissions going to charities.
Just a word about getting here. If you can walk here – please do, if you’re driving to Loughborough please consider parking in town – we’re only a 10 minute walk from the town centre, and parking is free there on Sunday.
Come along! It'll be great to see you.
