Wingfield Open Gardens
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2017
11.00am to 5.00pm
Wingfield is a village on the Suffolk-Norfolk border, with its medieval castle, once home to the earls and dukes of Suffolk, and great 14th century collegiate church.
We are fortunate to have the fascinating gardens of the medieval college open this year - this historic house is associated with many important and colourful historical characters, including The Black Prince, Mary Tudor, Henry VIII and the Dukes of Suffolk, the De La Poles, one of the most powerful families in medieval England.
Many more gardens are open in 2017 including some for the 1st time, and the village has a scarecrow trail for visitors to explore.
We have cream teas and light lunches on offer at various locations as well as craft stalls and a display of Romany caravans.
Proceeds will go to St Andrew's Church.
Plant sales: Plant sales in several gardens including garden crafts.
Cost: £3.00 for both days, accompanied under 16's free.
How to get event passports: In advance from the De La Pole public house; on the day from GWC equestrian.
Number of gardens: Approximately 13 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
