2018 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.

In 2018 each participant is working to the theme of ‘Animals in the Bible’ so there is sure to be lots to see for all members of the family! 

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 9: 4:30 pm – 5.30 pm

Enjoy the light classical repertoire of Chris Symons playing a solo programme 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.


ART GALLERY

In the barn at Covers Farm (in Church Lane) you can view drawing and paintings by local artists Lesley Hollands RA, Penny Swayne, and Kate Greenbank, and the late Dick Swayne, as well as photographs by  Craig McGregor.  Most of these artworks are for sale alongside our famous BOG greeting cards and delicious Bramshott honey… 


GNOME HUNT!

For our youngest visitors we have hidden Nine Gnomes in different open gardens. Look out for imposters, and find the letter under each special Gnome one to spell the winning word, and collect a treat from the Ticket Tent!


 PLANT STALL

Local Bramshott gardeners will be displaying and selling plants and cuttings from the centre of the village.
