  • It's all happening between 1pm-4pm.

Lucy Thorpe, one of the Help For Heroes Horticultural Therapists will be there to explain some of the amazing work that the H4H charity does with injured armed services personnel and veterans. She's doing a talk at around 3pm.

ADMISSION COSTS

  • The gardens will be open to visitors with a £5 entry fee for adults, which goes to the NGS

There will be refreshments available with all donations going to Help for Heroes.
