Croston 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 15 gardens opened Croston, near Chorley, Lancashire
Sunday 9th July 2017
11.00am to 4.00pm

It's hard to believe that just 18 months after the floods which devastated the picturesque village of Croston and left 220 families and businesses homeless on Boxing Day, the village is once again opening its garden gates for Croston Open Gardens.

The Croston community has worked hard to restore the beauty of the village. Through the passion and talents of its villagers and supporters it was voted winner in 2016 of the Large Village category in Lancashire’s Best Kept Village Awards and won Gold and First Prize in the North West in Bloom Awards just 6 months after the appalling floods.

A range of stunning private gardens in picturesque Croston will be open to visitors. The variety of gardens on show, from the wild and informal to landscaped minimalist and picture-box perfect country gardens, offer something for everyone.

At the end of Church Street and adjacent to the ancient St Michael’s Church, Croston Old School will be a hub of activity on the day with a plant sale, planting demonstration, and a raffle. Refreshments will be served in the form of tea and delicious homemade cakes, and entertainment will be provided by Leyland Morris Dancers.

All proceeds will go to Croston Together which supports village organisations, groups and organisations but also new community initiatives including the annual Croston music festival, community mini bus and community garden.

Plant sales:
There will be plant sales at Croston Old School.

£5.00 adults, accompanied under 16s free.

How to get event passports:
On the day from Croston Old School. In advance, from Favourites or The Grapes on Town Road, Croston. For group bookings, please contact us.
