Rodborough Hidden Gardens and Sculpture

Please note
This event rested in 2021 and we don't have any up to date event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 11 gardens opened Rodborough, Stroud, Gloucestershire
Sunday 9th June 2019
11.00pm to 5.00pm

Rodborough's fourth Hidden Gardens and Sculpture Trail promises to be a visual extravaganza and is an exciting addition to Stroud's calendar of key cultural events.

For the day, resident gardeners will be throwing open their gates to welcome garden enthusiasts and art lovers. These beautiful, hidden gardens in and around Church Place, Rodborough, range from smaller more intimate cottage style to more substantial landscaped gardens reflecting the individual characters of the owners. These include the fascinating 'secret garden' surrounding Rodborough Court.

The event showcases a dozen or so artists and sculptors, many of whom will be there to talk about their work. We are delighted to welcome back Helen Lomberg, Tom Harvey, Gabriel Bennett Marion Mitchell, along with many new faces as well.

Building on the success of the last event we will be holding an exhibition of sculpture created by local primary school children on the subject of Re-Cycle and Re-Use. There will be free drop-in art workshops for children, book signings by local author Katie Fforde and guided tours of the gardens of the historic Rodborough Court.

There will be a range of stalls in Church Place selling local produce and plants with delicious refreshments served in The Old Endowed School. Sorry, but we have limited access for dogs.

Proceeds this year will go to The Old Endowed School, St Mary Magdalene Church, Mothers in Mind and Stroud Valleys Project.
