Histon and Impington Open Gardens
Histon and Impington, near Cambridge
Sunday 9th June 2019
12.00noon to 6.00pm
The delightful neighbouring Cambridgeshire villages of Histon and Impington will be opening their gardens, with 11 gardens new to the event, and including the Village Community Orchard.
These spaces will tempt gardens lovers of every type. There are secluded oases where water bubbles and chickens, cats and even pigs roam free, or grand landscapes with moats, islands and mysterious woods. There are Japanese-themed spaces as well as collections of Mediterranean drought-tolerant plants.
You can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat too as tea, coffee and cake will be on offer in some gardens, while in others you can enjoy the sound of live music by local musicians. There's even a book reading for children.
Proceeds go to Arthur Rank Hospice, Cavendish House School Garden Project, the Opportunity Playgroup and the Histon and Impington Feast.
Plant sales: Plant sales at the Village Green.
Cost: £6.00 on the day, £5.00 in advance, accompanied under 16s free.
How to get event passports: In advance (from mid May) from The Geographer Cafe, Station Stores, the Post Office, STAC or Lighthouse Toys; on the day from any participating garden or the Village Green.
