Quorn Open Gardens
Quorn Village, near Loughborough, Leicestershire
Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July 2018
12.30pm to 5.30pm
A range of gardens are open to the public over the weekend. Most are open on both days, some for one or the other.
The gardens are scattered around the village, some in clusters and some out on their own. Quorn is a large village, so getting between gardens at opposite ends of the village can take time. It's quite walkable, but a bike is handy and you can even drive - there are very few parking restrictions in the village and you can often park very close to each garden.
Some garden owners will be selling plants and providing refreshments and cakes. There will be an art exhibition at the Church Rooms, Church Lane and a few classic cars on display outside. There are also four public open spaces in and around the village - all are worth a visit.
Proceeds of Quorn Open Gardens will go to LOROS.
Cost: £4.00 adults, accompanied under 16s free. Passport allows free access to the Church Rooms.
How to get event passports: On the day from any participating garden or at the Church Rooms; in advance from Bradley's on Station Road or the Co-Op on Loughborough Road.
Number of gardens: Approximately 20 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
