Gargrave Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2017 but we don't yet have this year's details. When we get them, we'll add them, but in the meantime we include below event information from last year to remind you about the event.

 approx 21 gardens opened Gargrave, northwest of Skipton, Yorkshire
Saturday 10th June 2017
11.00am to 5.00pm

Come and discover the great variety of Gargrave's garden gems, with live music (more than 50 performers) in gardens and other venues throughout this beautiful Yorkshire Dales village.

All Gargrave Gardens are within walking distance of each other. There are a further two in Bell Busk, a couple of miles away, one of which is open from 8.00am to 8.00pm.

Adding to the live multi-sensory mix will be Alpasta the Alpaca, a mini-donkey, pigmy goat and rabbits in and around the Dalesman Café, with a mass sing of All Things Bright and Beautiful there at 11.00am. Other performances also through the day.

A summerhouse installation of wheel-thrown bud vases and small plates will be in a canalside garden, and also an Automata exhibition at the Art Depot on Asquith Ind Estate.
