Thurcaston and Cropston Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2018 but we don't yet have this year's details. When we get them, we'll add them, but in the meantime we include below event information from last year to remind you about the event.

Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June 2018

A warm welcome awaits you at the varied gardens of our parish. Large and small, simple and elaborate, immaculate and a little more 'natural', all very different and all for you to enjoy.

Our gardeners are usually available to welcome you to their gardens and will try to answer any questions that you may have.

Comfy shoes are probably advisable but afternoon teas will be available to take a rest and enjoy your surroundings. We look forward to seeing you.
