Draycott Open Gardens
Draycott, near Long Eaton, Derbyshire
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2017
11.00am to 5.00pm
Draycott has many interesting gardens, of various sizes and styles, from small cottage gardens to larger, more formal gardens. The Village should be a blaze of colour this year as we are entered again into the East Midlands in Bloom competition. We are proud to announce we were awarded Gold in 2016.
Come and spend a day, or the whole weekend, (Entry Maps are valid for both days) in our pretty Derbyshire Village. See the lovely hanging baskets, themed displays, as well of course as the open gardens themselves.
St Chad's Church is also holding its Flower Festival during the course of the weekend. See the Entry Map for further details. Refreshments will be available at various locations.
All proceeds go back into the local community to help fund future events and projects.
