Fressingfield Garden Festival 2007
near Eye, north Suffolk
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June
10am to 6pm
The ‘open gardens festival with a difference’ is back. The Fressingfield Garden Festival, in north Suffolk, will take place for the third time, during the weekend of 16th and 17th June 2007.
Here the traditional ‘open gardens’ has developed into a very special event for both the amateur and more experienced enthusiast, with even more of interest this year.
Over 20 gardens are accessible and hugely varied, from the lawns, hedges, arbour and vegetables of the largest house to the manicured cottage garden and lots in between, with examples of some of the best of East Anglian sculpture, including that of Brian Alabaster (just back from Chelsea), Ben Platt Mills and Alice Palser.
In the village centre will be marquees with regionally renowned nurseries and a taste of Country Living with stalls, music, ice cream and more and the church in flower is a new addition to this year’s Festival, featuring the ‘Four Seasons’.
The Festival Food is second to none, with coffee and cake in the morning, while you plan your day, Festival Lunch at midday and strawberry and cream teas in the afternoon. The Swan Inn and Fox and Goose Inn will also be open all day, both days.
Easily accessible from both the A140 and A143 to the north of the county, this is a unique opportunity to learn more about our favourite pastime in a most enjoyable setting.
Admission to the gardens by programme, £4 on the day or in advance from Fressingfield Stores or by calling 01379 586459 / 586269.
Everything else – free of charge.
The Fressingfield Garden Festival supports the restoration of the bells of St Peter and St Paul Fressingfield.
A very warm welcome awaits.
