Barrow-upon-Soar Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2018 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 20 gardens opened Barrow upon Soar, near Loughborough, Leicestershire
Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June 2018
11.00am to 5.00pm

Discover the hidden world of gardens and growing in this much-visited open garden weekend. As we prepare for another Barrow Open Gardens (BOG), who knows what will be in store? Will there be more builders yard planting and recycled shower cubicle greenhouses?

We can guarantee immaculate and classic village gardens, quirky havens and much loved vegetable plots. With such a wide variety on show, every garden in our village has a story to tell. Visitors old and new can be sure of a very warm welcome in Barrow-upon-Soar gardens.

Proceeds to Rainbows Children's Hospice, Loughborough who caring for children and teenagers with life-limiting conditions.

4.00 gets you a programme that acts as a Garden Passport allowing you to view gardens at any point in hours for the two days. Programmes are coded. Accompanied under 14s free.

How to get event passports
Before the day - look for posters in the village centre shops that have signed up to sell programmes; on the day, buy from any garden displaying an Open Gardens poster.
