Herefordshire’s Great Spring Gardening Event, in aid of the British Red Cross, will once again return to Newport House, in Almeley, north Herefordshire on 26 April 2018.
A stalwart of the event calendar for Herefordshire, this is the county’s largest Red Cross fundraising occasion, contributing towards the invaluable services that the British Red Cross delivers every day in our local communities, as well as their amazing national efforts.
Visitors will have the chance to enjoy this wonderful large privately owned garden, not usually open to the public, as well as purchase high quality plants and flowers from specialist nurseries, garden accessories, crafts, gifts and fashion. Enjoy great walks and talks on foraging with Adele Nozedar, a cookery talk and demonstration from award-winning chef Andy Link, Newport House walled garden tours with their Head Gardener, and live music from international violinist Ralph Allin at 1pm.
Plus there’s delicious food inside the lovely tea tent, and from selected artisan purveyors.
Open 10.30am – 4pm.
Tickets £6 in advance and £7 on the gate. To book your tickets in advance go to: great-spring-garden
