A Midsummer Lunch

Easton hosts it’s second Midsummer Press Day


The last press day we held at Easton was about 5 year’s ago. It was such a lovely event, we decided to do it again!

This year was a huge success, with over 70 guests in attendance, from journalists, writers and bloggers to garden owners and head gardeners from across the country.

Our speakers, Matthew Wilson, Guy Barter and Laura Garnett gave awe-inspiring talks that were very well received and the lunch provided by Davina and her team, was sooooo good!

All our guests had the opportunity to wander the gardens at their leisure and many stayed quite late, taking photos of the beautiful flowers. Everyone went home with a goody bag and thanks to Nutscene, Franchi Seeds, Taylors of Harrogate and Perennial for their contributions.

Autumn Workshops

We are hosting a wonderful variety of workshops throughout September and October, learn a new skill, meet new friends and take your creations home with you…

Spanish Tapas

From an afternoon with Linda Hewett learning about, cooking and eating Spanish Tapas to Beginners Botanical Painting with Dawn Wright, there is a workshop for all ages and abilities.

You might want to start getting ready for Christmas (sounds crazy but Christmas will be just around the corner by the time you attend your workshop!), so for the festive season lovers, we have the opportunity for you to make, bake and decorate your own festive cookies or chocolates.

If you’re looking to make gifts for friends and family with a real personal touch, then why not plump for either our Lino Printmaking workshop or the 2-day Willow Weaving Animal workshop? There’s also the Stone Carving Letters workshop, a great follow on from the beginners stone carving and it’s a great gift idea for Father’s Day!
