Crich Open Gardens

Crich Open Gardens

Sun Jun 27 11:00:00 2021

We are thrilled that we will be resuming Crich Open Gardens again and we have even more gardens to see this year.

This time we will be opening over two consecutive weekends on Sunday 27th June and Saturday 3rd July.

Maps will be available from the telephone kiosk on the market place and our thanks go to Roy Nadin for providing them free of charge.

Watch out for more information on Crich Standard website nearer the time.

Of course, all of this is dependent upon the current government guidance at the time and sadly, we won’t be able to offer any refreshments this time.

We hope it will be a lovely celebration of the hard work of our gardeners and we look forward to welcoming you.
