Festival of the Garden 2023

This year's Festival of the Garden returns 13–16 July 2023.

Festival of the Garden returns this July! Join us to explore our relationship with the land, landscapes and gardens, discover thoughts and changing perspectives on topics from wilderness to cultivation, and celebrate the communities that have come to care for plants and our natural world.

Our grounds and gardens will be in full bloom and overflowing with performances, talks, workshops, walks and demos. This year’s festival includes our largest programme of free fringe events, and brand-new workshops including a selection for children and families.  Soak up the atmosphere across the site and discover a wide selection of plant stalls from quality, independent local growers, a bookshop and delicious pop-up food stalls.  

Tickets on general sale now.
