The Writtle Gardens Open Day – a local event for nearly 25 years – is back on Sunday 19th June after a three-year break. This has become a special attraction for garden-lovers and a chance to enjoy an afternoon in this picturesque Essex village.
Visitor numbers have grown year-on-year, with around 1,000 supporters attending the last event in 2019. All proceeds go towards the upkeep of All Saints Church, which dates from the 13th century. This year, as well as the regular garden favourites, there will be some new ones to visit.
Proceedings start at 11.30 on Writtle Green with judging of the children’s scarecrow competition. This will be followed at midday by the official opening and a performance by the Mayflower Morris Men – before visitors head off to visit the village gardens.
Afternoon refreshments will include a ploughman’s lunch and afternoon teas in the Christian Centre, plus teas and cakes in the Village Hall. Plants will be available for sale on Writtle Green.
£5 per adult - children free
