Burley Open Gardens

Open GardensOnce again Burley will be holding its Open Gardens event.

This year will be Burley's fourth fundraising opportunity to support local and national charities, with exhibitors gratefully collecting donations for their chosen charities whilst allowing visitors to wander around their own private gardens.
Some hosts will be providing refreshments, whilst others will simply be unobtrusively hovering in the background, ready to provide helpful advice where requested.
Maps will be available from the Queen's Hall 11am onwards to spotlight the ten sites so far registered.
