Draycott Open Gardens

This event is resting for 2021
Sorry, but Draycott Open Gardens isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event

 approx 20 gardens opened Draycott, near Long Eaton, Derbyshire

11.00am to 5.00pm

Draycott has many interesting gardens, of various sizes and styles, from small cottage gardens to larger, more formal gardens. The village was awarded Gold in the RHS East Midlands in Bloom competition, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and also Gold in the National Britain in Bloom competition 2018, and is entering the East Midlands competition this year, so the whole village will be a blaze of colour again.

In addition to the gardens, take time to look at 'The Living Wall' commended by the RHS and part of the village's 'In Bloom' entry. There is also a 'Tree of Life' art competition and exhibition at the Methodist Church on Saturday. For the first time this year, we are delighted to have an amazing Vintage Motorcycle exhibition over the weekend.

Come and spend a day, or the whole weekend in our pretty Derbyshire Village. See the lovely hanging baskets, themed displays, as well of course as the open gardens themselves.

Refreshments available at the village's tearooms, coffee shop, public houses and in some gardens.

All proceeds from this event go back into the local community to help fund future events and projects.

Plant sales
Plant sales available at a number of the gardens and at the Draycott Village Fund and Draycott in Bloom stall on Saturday.

2.50 per adult, valid for both days.

How to get event passports
Maps available where signposted in the village a week before and during the event.
