I-Spy that Wirksworth is Blooming!

There will be an international flavour to the Hidden Courtyards and Gardens of Wirksworth as this year the weekend coincides with the arrival of visitors from Wirksworth’s fellow Twinning towns of Die in France and Frankenau in Germany. On Saturday 23rdand Sunday 24thJune Wirksworth will be buzzing and blooming as 29 gardeners will open their gardens to the public.  The weekend promises to be a hive of activity – music from the Community Choir and Community Orchestra, rare and unusual plants for sale from local nurseries, plenty of tea and delicious home-made cakes for visitors to devour and one garden on the Trail is even offering exotic Asian food. Visitors will be surprised and entranced by small courtyards, hidden gardens, historic houses, and peaceful places as well as wonderful views of the town and surrounding countryside. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the unique beauty and welcoming atmosphere of this historic and quirky town. An added attraction this year is an I-Spy Trail for children with hidden objects for children to find and record, so children can be kept busy whilst parents enjoy the gardens.

The gardens are open from 12 to 5 p.m. on both days and tickets for the whole weekend cost only £4, £3 concessions, and there is no charge for children 16 and under. All monies raised go to charities and local groups. Further details are available from www.wirksworthgardens.co.uk, emailing wirksworthgardens@hotmail.co.uk or by telephoning 01629 922539 .
