Whittington Open Gardens

Please note
This event rested in 2016 so we don't have any recent event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 12 gardens opened Whittington, south-east of Lichfield
Sunday 14th June 2015
11.00am to 5.00pm

This is the first ever opportunity for garden enthusiasts to see some of the beautiful gardens in this Staffordshire village - there are 11 open gardens scattered around this lovely village. Most are within easy walking distance. You can hop onto our free minibus to reach the outlying gardens. From large to small, every garden has a beauty and character all its own.

Several of the featured gardens won prizes in the 'Bee-Friendly Gardens' competition in 2014 - so there will be lots of inspiration to be found if you wish to attract wildlife.

Jubilee Park is the location of our recently established community orchard, which contains a host of rare and regional heritage fruit trees, a wildflower meadow and a bee-friendly garden designed by local Brownies. There will be craft stalls here and delicious lunches using produce from Woodhouse Community Farm.

Tea, home-made cake, and craft stalls in some gardens, some with live music too. Children will be enthralled and entertained by the Fairy Doors trail - hidden in each garden will be one or more fairy doors, all hand-made by local people.

All proceeds will go to village environment projects.

Plant sales:
Plant sales in Jubilee Park and in several gardens.

3.00 per adult, free entry for accompanied under-16s.

How to get event passports:
