The event will run from 10am-5pm, tickets from the Memorial Hall, £5 per adult, children free.
ENTRY TO THE GARDENS AND STUDIOS- on paying at the hall you will be given a map and a badge, you must have the badge visible to the garden and studio owners so they can allow access. If you do not have a badge you will be directed to the hall to pay.
The church will be selling refreshments.
The history club may have a display in the hall and signage out to mark points of interest but this is not yet confirmed (- the history club in general having many of the same members as the garden club so they will be pretty busy in the run-up getting their gardens perfect!)
If more details become available I will add them on to this ……..
UPDATE -Sasha, Jack and Elin will be opening the Mini Museum, for those who have not visited before this is a museum of objects collected and organised by three of the village children. It has diverse collections including Victorians, Egypt, Space, Fossils. (please note entry is via fairly steep stairs and headroom is restricted).
MORE -The studios include:
- Gilly Thomas, painter, have a look at www.gillythomas.co.uk
- IvorRichards, sculptor specialising in carving slate www.ivorrichards.co.uk
- Gareth Griffith, 2 & 3 dimensional work
- Morgan Griffith, find info at www.sonomano.blogspot.co.uk
- Rebecca F Hardy, find info at www.rfhardy.blogspot.co.uk
- Jan Loxton, print making, textile and graphic work.
Ivor and Gilly share a studio, as do Gareth, Morgan and Rebecca, the websites and blogs listed above show some stunning work so the studios should be fascinating. I saw an exhibition by Gareth a few months ago and can’t wait to see what he has on show and I was lucky enough to visit Jans’ studio a couple of years ago- absolutely fascinating. Jan also has a lovely bluebell walk open through her grounds and animals to look at.
The history club WILL be setting up a display in the hall.
CHILDREN– there will be a hunt the picture activity for children, there are also several gardens with feathered/furred creatures to see (chickens, donkeys, goats, bunny, guinea pigs at the last count), also the mini museum and a fabulous garden full of gnomes which can’t fail to enchant.
Visitors from outside the area– if you need help to find us go to ‘bookings’ on the menu bar at the top of this page then select ‘location’ from the drop down menu to find both a google and o.s.map. The hall has a car park, if that is full you can park along the road by the hall.
Everyone cross your fingers for good weather 🙂
