Draycott Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2023 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 15 gardens opened Draycott, near Long Eaton, Derbyshire
Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2023
11.00am to 5.00pm

Come and view the many interesting and varied gardens on display this year, from small cottage gardens to larger, more formal gardens.

The village was awarded Gold in the RHS East Midlands in Bloom competition in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022 and also Gold in the RHS Britain in Bloom competition in 2018 and 2022.

As a result, expect to see the whole village looking spectacular. Do take time to admire, not only the open gardens and planting displays but the artwork created by the 'In Bloom' group to complement it. Don't miss 'The Living Wall' commended by the RHS and part of the village's 'In Bloom' entry.

Come and spend a day or the whole weekend in our Derbyshire village. See the lovely hanging baskets, themed displays, as well as the open gardens themselves.

Refreshments available at various locations.

All proceeds from this event go back into the local community to help fund future events and projects.
