Visits, Walks and Talks

Visit to a Sculptor's Garden in Eyam, Derbyshire

Our events team provides us with some wonderful experiences., organising visits to gardens less well known, perhaps very rarely opened. 

On these visits, often it is the owner or head gardener who will show us round.  Hearing the stories behind the garden provides a whole new dimension to the visitor experience. It's not surprising that our summer garden visits are very popular. Our regular Newsletter includes short reports about visits and also winter talks and will give you a better idea of the range of events. Members are also encouraged to contribute text and photos for these. Please look through our Newsletter archive and you will be able to read all about these fantastic events.

Following the success of the talks held via zoom during the winter lockdown in 2020-21, the Events Team is pleased to provide details of two talks via zoom in the early months of 2022. 

As with the previous series, these talks will be free. Both talks will start at 2pm and will last for about hour and a half. 
These fascinating talks detail incredible extensive work to ensure that our garden legacy continues to delight all those who visit.  

We hope you will join us for these interesting talks. Please e-mail Margaret Blowey ( with your details to be sent the zoom link, together with some helpful notes on the use of zoom, in advance of each meeting. An early response would be most appreciated. 

The Events Team was proposing to arrange two further zoom talks with speakers from further afield on 30th November 2021 and 1st February 2022.

We are sorry to report that the speaker on 30th November unfortunately is unavailable at this time through unforeseen circumstances: it is hoped, however, that the proposed talk on the Gardens of St Peterburg can be rearranged for a future date. 

We are hoping also to arrange a further zoom talk on Tuesday 1st February, details of which are awaited early in 2022. 

 All best wishes from the Events Team
