(Virtual) Marlborough Open Gardens 2020 – The Merchant’s House
19 June @ 5:00 pm – 21 June @ 11:30 am
Welcome to Virtual Marlborough Open Gardens 2020, an online Coronavirus-beating alternative to our longstanding Marlborough Open Gardens event.On Sunday 21st June around a dozen generous members of the public were expecting to open their gardens during the afternoon in aid of the Merchant’s House Trust. Now in its 14th year, this was one of our most important fundraising events. However, for very obvious reasons we have moved this year’s event online in order to protect our community and ensure that we can share some of the joy we experience in our gardens, even if we can’t actually stroll around and take in the sights and smells in person.
We are inviting Marlborough garden owners who would like to participate in this community initiative to send us up to six photographs of their garden and we will showcase a selection of them on this web site and also on our Facebook page. All participants will receive a certificate.
Whether you have a formal, informal, family, cottage, town, permaculture, vegetable, wildlife or any other description of garden, we would love to see your photos. There is no entry fee, and it is not a competition, but a wonderful incentive for you has generously been offered by Ramsbury Brewery. All those taking part will be entered into a free prize draw for an exquisite “Taste of Ramsbury” hamper which includes gin, vodka, beer, oil, honey and even some glasses. The draw will be made by the Mayor of Marlborough on Sunday 21st June.
