Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and
culture, bringing together over 2,000 organisations, 5,000 events
and 40,000 volunteers. Every year in September, places across
the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage,
community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places
and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.
This exhibition features textile and mixed media pieces exploring what each artist finds magical about gardens. The Material Girls hope visitors to the exhibition will enjoy leaving their troubles at the door and step into ‘The Enchanted Garden’.
We are delighted to have made such a positive start since reopening in April. So many visitors have said how glad they are that we are open again. This emphasises to us that we are making a positive contribution to both the local community and visitors from outside the district.
