Marchington Open Gardens
Marchington, near Uttoxeter, Staffordshire
Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June 2018
12.00noon to 5.00pm
Come and join us at our open garden event in our pretty village of Marchington on the border of Staffordshire and Derbyshire.
There will be a variety of gardens to view including some new to this event and we are thrilled that this year there will be an opportunity to view the garden of the historic 17th Century Marchington Hall (Sunday only).
Refreshments will be available at several locations including ploughman's lunches, tea and cake, scones, hot dogs, beer, fizz and strawberries. We will also feature a scarecrow competition and classic vehicles so this will be a fun day for all the family in an idyllic setting.
Our beautiful Parish Church of St Peters will be holding an exhibition of skills and crafts on both days open from 10.30am to 4.30pm. The village hall will host a photography exhibition along with refreshments. There will be food and wine tasting at the Community Shop.
Proceeds from the Open Gardens event will go to support the Community Shop which run by volunteers.
Plant sales: Plants for sale at several gardens, the community shop, and stalls around the village.
Cost: £5.00 per person to cover both days, under 16s free.
How to get event passports: Programmes and wristbands will be available from Marchington Community Shop from Monday 11th June or on the day from the shop and selected gardens.
Number of gardens: Approximately 11 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
