This coming weekend will see a wide variety of gardens across England and Wales opening to the public for the second ever National Gardens Festival Weekend. Over 500 gardens are planning on opening over the two days, with the aim of raising money for nursing and caring charities, such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Carers Trust.
There are a number of different types of gardens included in the weekend, such as:
- urban gardens
- formal country gardens
- designer gardens
- herb gardens
- artist's gardens
- village 'group gardens'
- celebrity gardens
There will also be demonstrations, stalls, arts and crafts, live music and other events happening at some of the gardens. Why not give them a visit and see what different things you can discover in the gardens this weekend?!
In Olney, the Cowper & Newton Museum gardens will be open for both days of the weekend, with live demonstrations and artists, as well as the gardens to view.
