Bradninch Musical Gardens

Bradninch, near Exeter, Devon
Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June 2017
12.00noon to 5.00pm

Bradninch Musical GardensImagine wandering through a pretty garden admiring the planting, when you hear the gentle strains of live music on the summer air. This is the pleasure that awaits visitors when the village opens its gardens ranging from stately homes to historic cottages. Wandering musicians will entertain visitors with all types of music from classical to jazz.

We are working hard to make it the magical community event it once was. With have a good range of gardens open, we can offer the broadest variety of gardens be they large or small, vegetable or colourful, from potagers to just pots. With the right mix the weekend can be a wonderful time for families, the young and not so young and for the gardeneers.

Teas and refreshments will be available at many of the gardens and many strolling minstrels, balladeers and the odd choir thrown in, and classic cars.

What more can be said of having a cake in one hand, a cup of tea or pimms in the other, with the sound of music wafting over sunlight gardens amongst friends?

Some gardens are not suitable for dogs - guide dogs welcome throughout.

The event raises funds for the Bradninch Music Festival and other local causes.
