Wedding Open Evening

There is a stunning backdrop for every celebration, be it a wedding, christening, birthday or anniversary. Celebrate in the company of your family and friends with Pimm’s, deck chairs and garden games in high summer; or with mulled cider and roast venison in deepest winter. Whatever the weather or season, you can dine in the stunning Pavilion and dance the night away in the comfort of our historic Jubilee Hall.

On Thursday 24th October, we offer a very special opportunity to experience the venue during the evening.  Inside, prosecco & canapes and live musical entertainment and outside, twinkling lights and a fire pit on the terrace. Spend some time chatting to our team of professional event planners and in-house chefs and meet a selection of recommended suppliers.

 Free entry for all visitors from 6pm to 9pm.

Gardens closed for End of the Road Festival

From humble beginnings in 2006, End of The Road has become a firm favourite in the festival season winning ‘Best Medium Sized Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards (2017) and ‘Best Small Festival’ at the NME Awards for two years running (2015 & 2016). Having gained a reputation for its incredible line ups, brilliantly independent spirit and relaxed atmosphere, End of The Road is as loved by artists as it is by the loyal audience who return every year.

A defiantly independent affair, End of The Road offers an extraordinary setting far from the corporate norm in which you can watch incredible bands, dance till you drop in enchanting fairy lit woods and laugh ‘til you cry at some of the world's foremost comedians, all whilst sampling delicious award-winning food and hand-picked craft beers and ales. Come make new friends under the stars and around the campfire.

Old Herbaceous

Old Herbaceous

OLD HERBACEOUS

 Produced by Kick In The Head, Written by Alfred Shaughnessy, Directed by Simon Downing

With Giles Shenton as Herbert Pinnegar 

Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips”, Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced sell-out audiences all around the country over the last two years.

An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The evening blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century.

 As Old Herbaceous, renowned actor Giles Shenton truly lives the part of the legendary Head Gardener, Herbert Pinnegar, inviting you to feel included in a private chat from a bygone, comforting age. Keeping you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, Old Herbaceous will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.

Gates open 4.30pm and performance begins at 5.30pm

This is an outdoor production. There are a limited number of deckchairs available on a first come first served basis, but you are welcome to bring your own chair or blanket to sit on. There will be refreshments on sale during the evening, but picnics are welcome. Tickets £12.50 per person.

"This lovingly created production is a joy to watch. Sad at times, it unexpectedly twists into a quiet love story of sorts. A delightful tale, beautifully told, Old Herbaceous is a treat to watch and not just for garden lovers." The Reviews Hub

"Wonderful production....Downton Abbey with gardening tips" Surrey Advertiser

"Not to be missed" BBC Radio Kent

“Reminiscent of going down to the allotment with your grandad…..a wonderful, wonderful evening” BBC Radio Lincolnshire

“Absolutely idyllic” BBC Radio York

“What exactly was the factor that kept the audience riveted to Giles Shenton’s performance? He draws us into his world from his first entrance...and we are held entranced from start to finish....it is a nostalgic, quietly satisfying evening spent with someone who creates an instant rapport with the audience, drawing us into his world and making the characters in it so real you feel you have known them forever." Edinburgh Fringe Review

"Possibly one of the most poignant, beautifully acted, heart-warming plays I have ever seen...and I have seen many! My only regret is that I didn't get the opportunity to tell Giles Shenton, in person, how utterly amazing his performance was! Outstanding." Audience feedback

Music From The Singing Theatre

Gardens Open 11.00 am - 4.30 pm

The Blackmore Vale Brass Band will be performing on the Singing Theatre from 2-2.45pm and again at 3-3.45pm. Grab and deckchair and enjoy!

In 2018, local professional musicians, Neil McMullan, Phil Blake, Nick Briggs, John Bilby and Lee Baines founded your local brass ensemble. They soon realised that Neil’s surname did not begin with a B but they let him stay anyway!

Whilst the ensemble was set up to provide top performers to vent their musicianship, we all have day jobs and like all musicians we have a plethora of experience from playing in some of the top orchestras and bands to chimney sweeping and piano tuning!

In any case, you can rest assured that our music will have something for everyone in it—Classical, Pop, easy listening and fun pieces.

Standard Entry Fees Apply

Adults £4.00

Senior Citizens, Groups (15+) and Concessions £3.00
