This summer’s Lady Bay Open Gardens event is scheduled for Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 of July with an impressive 25 gardens on show as well as lots of entertainment and cake and plant stalls. All money raised over the weekend will be donated to Lady Bay Community Fund as well as various charities nominated by garden owners.


Visitors can buy an Open Gardens entry programme ticket for £3 valid for all gardens from any participating garden, looking out for Open Garden boards outside each house which have been kindly provided by event supporter Winkworth Estate Agent in West Bridgford.
