Events 2021

Please note: Covid-19 has impacted our Events and Outings programme – see News Page.

EVENTS:


Our first of the year (albeit non-RGHS)!

Sun 7 March – ‘A Night in with Monty Don’ featuring the ever-popular gardener.

Join Monty in conversation as he celebrates the paperback publication of My Garden World: a personal journal of the natural year, observed from the immediate world around him. Each season has something different to delight in – from the primroses and bluebells of spring, to butterflies that colour summer skies and the crowds of migrating swallows that herald the coming of autumn – all have a place alongside the yearly cycle of growth and renewal. My Garden World is an ode to the ever-surprising and comforting presence of nature.

Don’t miss the unique opportunity to walk virtually alongside Monty, month by month, and experience the commonplace miracles and rhythms of nature through his eyes. This is a timely and thought-provoking celebration of the wildlife that we all share.
