Barrow-upon-Soar Open Gardens

 approx 22 gardens open Barrow upon Soar, near Loughborough, Leicestershire
Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June 2019
11.00am to 5.00pm

We invite you to join us on a fabulous weekend journey around Barrow following some traditional jitties and visiting lovely hidden gardens and nine gardened public spaces.

Barrow is a large village and our open gardens are mainly to be found clustered tightly in the old centre and along the river and canal sides, whilst others are more spread out in the newer estates, so to help you we have designed our programme around three routes for you to follow.

On your way round we hope you take time to visit the 20 years Exhibition and art gallery featuring the work of a Barrow Artist on Beveridge Street, buy some plants and crafts from garden stalls and enjoy delicious food and drinks in lovely garden settings.

Children are encouraged to join in the Gnome Hunt (there is one hidden in every garden) and to follow the Barrow Fossil Trail.

Proceeds to Rainbows Children's Hospice, Loughborough.

Cost
4.00 adults, covers both days, accompanied under 14s free.

How to get event passports
Before the day - look for posters in the village centre shops that have signed up to sell programmes; on the day, buy from any garden displaying an Open Gardens poster.

Number of gardens
Approximately 22 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
