Barton under Needwood Gardens Festival
Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June 2019
from 1pm till 6pm
(Last entries to Teddy Rides 5.30pm)
We are delighted to announce that Open Gardens are back after a break last year and we look forward to welcoming visitors old and new to our unique fun event. The weekend offers something for children, parents, grandparents and everyone else to enjoy - not forgetting the teddies of course! As well as putting smiles on faces the weekend will also help swell the coffers of our chosen charities.
Also back this year is our Friday night Gala Concert and we’ll be getting the festivities off to a rousing start with local vocal harmony group Fusion who will be performing Songs from the Shows at St James’s Church on Friday the 21st of June at 7.30pm. And to celebrate the return of the open gardens and concert, everyone who buys a ticket to see Fusion will be able to buy a gardens wristband for half price - that’s just £2.50.
So come and join in the weekend’s fun which takes place all around the village, including:
Exciting rides for adventurous teddies and their soft furry friends. Last year’s exciting new ride has had a power upgrade and will go even faster!read more
