Add your Open Gardens Event

Give as much information as you can. We'll then contact you to confirm it all and add it to our directory.

Please note
We will need a "public" contact email address to field your potential visitor enquiries - it will be published with your event information. If you don't have a suitable one (eg a Gmail account), set one up and come back to this form later.

You can of course opt to use your own private email address if you have no objections to it being added to your event details.

Don't Panic
It seems like a lot of boxes, but not all boxes need to be completed. Once on board, entries can be corrected at a later date.

Those boxes marked with a tick are important but not all are obligatory.
