Quorn Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2016 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.

Quorn Village, near Loughborough, Leicestershire
Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July 2016
12.30pm to 5.00pm

Quorn Open GardensA range of gardens are open to the public over the weekend. Most are open on both days, some for one or the other. Opening on just one day allows the garden owners to do a little espionage around the village.

The gardens are scattered around the village, some in clusters and some out on their own. Quorn is a large village, so getting between gardens at opposite ends of the village can take time. It's quite walkable, but a bike is handy and you can even drive - there are very few parking restrictions in the village and you can often park very close to each garden. Although not confirmed, we are considering getting a couple of mini-buses which would travel round the village.

Some garden owners will provide refreshments and cakes. Holloway House (Abbeyfield) will be open from 11.00am for viewing on Saturday only and will be doing lunches until 2.00pm. Crafts sales at the Church Rooms, Church Lane.

Proceeds of Quorn Open Gardens will go to Loros.

Plant sales on The Banks

Cost:
3.50 adults, under 16s free. Ticket allows free access to the craft fair.
