2016 Open Garden events

Find out about the special events that take place over the weekend.

FLOWER FESTIVAL

Beautifully arranged by our local enthusiasts, the Flower Festival is always a very popular feature of our weekend.

This year each participant is free to express their creativity with a range of set-pieces and artistic floral tableaux. As well as seasonal themes we imagine there will also be more than one reference to our Monarch’s 90th birthday celebrations!

The Flower Festival will once again take place in St Mary’s church over the whole Open Garden weekend. Visitors are invited to admire the imaginative themed floral displays, beautifully arranged throughout this ancient church. Donations welcomed.


SCROLL OF REMEMBRANCE

The Scroll of Remembrance is created anew for each Bramshott Open Gardens weekend. Crafted entirely by hand by a local calligrapher, the Scroll commemorates locals and loved ones who have passed on, and whose lives are remembered and celebrated by their family and friends on this special weekend. The Scroll is displayed in St Mary’s church.

If you would like commemorate a loved one on the 2018 Scroll please contact the organisers via email.


CONCERT RECITAL

Saturday, June 11: 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm

Enjoy the light classical repertoire of two local musicians playing solo programmes on keyboard in the gloriously acoustic interior of our twelfth century St Mary’s church, with doors open to welcome the early evening summer sunshine. FREE Entry with glass of wine, donations welcomed.
