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.

 approx 12 gardens opened Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, near Wallingford, Oxfordshire
Sunday 8th May 2016
2.00pm to 5.00pm

Enjoy a pleasant Sunday afternoon strolling around the fabulous gardens of one of the best-named and most beautiful villages in Oxfordshire.

As well as being able to visit any of the gardens at your leisure, you can choose to listen to expert talks and demonstrations throughout the afternoon in various gardens.

The programme of events is as follows:

- Ali Quantrell (University of Oxford Botanic Garden) will offer a demonstration of natural woven birch staking followed by a garden advice surgery over tea and cake.

- Resident horticulturalist Paul Chilton will share his expertise in the rare art of fruit tree grafting.

- Assembled Brightwell players will perform garden and nature inspired Folk music sung by local singer Madeleine Lowe (ex national youth choir).

- Jason Debney will enlighten us on the history of cottage gardens.

Also, throughout the afternoon the owners of Brightwell Bees Honey will showcase their observation hive. There will be a children's garden, complete with tree house. Teas will be available.
