Dersingham Open Gardens and Art Trail

Our annual Open Gardens and Art Trail event will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. Sunday and Monday 26th – 27th May, 11.00am – 5.00pm each day.

This year over fifteen gardens will be open and there will be nine art studio locations. Many of the artists will be opening their gardens too, so you can have two treats at one location!

As an added bonus this year, there will be a Gardeners’ Forum in the Village Centre, at 2.00pm on Sunday 26th. Hear advice from experts of a myriad of garden-related topics, such as tree surgery, ponds, lawn care, and garden design. Each talk will last about ten minutes, with an opportunity for ‘Q&A’ afterwards. On Monday, also at 2.00pm, a floral demonstration is planned.

Tickets for the event cost £5 on the day from the Village Centre, or £4 in advance from Dersingham Post Office. Either way, you will want to start from the Village Centre in Manor Road where you will collect your programme and map of the locations. Refreshments will be available in the Centre and at several individual gardens.

Fingers crossed for good weather, it looks as if it’s going to be another great event!
