New features in ruby Dersingham delight for showcase

Spring is here and it’s time to start planning a visit to Dersingham Open Gardens and Art Trail, which celebrates its ruby anniversary.

The event, which marks 40 years, takes place on Sunday, May 26 and Bank Holiday Monday, May 27, 11am-5pm.

This year is an exciting one for event organisers.

Around a dozen wonderfully diverse gardens will be open to wander around, with some new ones added to the old favourites.

Local artists will be opening their studios showing paintings, glasswork, pottery and photography, many of which will be available for purchase.

In addition, the venue now has a fabulous new Village Centre.

There, on the Sunday at 2pm, a Gardeners Forum will be presented to hear advice from experts on a myriad of garden-related topics such as tree surgery, ponds, lawn care and garden design.

Each talk will last about 10 minutes with an opportunity for ‘Q & A’ afterwards.

The experts will be around during the course of the afternoon to answer any further questions.

On Monday, also at 2pm, a floral demonstration is planned.

Morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon tea will be available on both days in the Main Hall of the Village Centre.

Some of the gardens will also be offering refreshments.

The garden visits will be enlivened by quizzes for young and old. So, as you go around the gardens, keep your eyes open for clues.

Tickets cost £4 in advance from Dersingham Post Office and £5 on the day, with proceeds being shared between the Village Centre and St Nicholas Church.
