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!

A Great Day for Antiques!

Our Antiques or Collectables day was a great success, as you can see from the photos of the owners waiting to have their treasures valued! Around £600 was raised for the two charities, the RNLI and East Anglian Air Ambulance, so a big thank you to everyone involved, including of course TV’s Flog It and Bargain Hunt experts Thomas Plant and Caroline Hawley, who were on hand to give expert advice.

Get your tickets for our fun Casino Night!

As part of our ongoing fundraising for the Village Centre, there will be a Supper and Casino Night in the Main Hall of the Centre, at 7.00pm on Saturday 16th March. This will be a joint fundraising event between the Dersingham Village Centre Association and the Dersingham Tennis Club.

You may be wondering “what is a Casino Night?” The hall of the Village Centre will be arranged as a casino, with tables for popular casino games such as roulette and blackjack. You can play on these tables with chips that are provided free to you. It’s purely for fun, no money changes hands, so you can’t loose your shirt, or win a fortune! Don’t worry if you don’t know how to play these games, your croupier will show you how.

The evening will have a fun, James Bond style theme, so if you’ve ever wanted to sit at a roulette or baccarat table and ask for “a dry martini, shaken not stirred”, this may be your chance! Tickets are available in advance from Dersingham Post Office, price £20, or buy on the door for £25. The price includes your supper and chips for the casino.  Drinks are available to buy. See the poster for details and don’t forget the date, Saturday 16th March.
