Summer Sundays at Barnsdale Gardens

It's all happening at Barnsdale! Every Sunday during July and August, we're offering family events, free with Garden entry.

Barnsdale’s Question Forum: 4th August, 11:30am & 2:30pm

After last years success we return with our gardening question time, join Nick Hamilton, Matt Biggs, David Hurrion and Barnsdale’s Head Gardener Jon Brocklebank on either of these question and answer sessions.

Summer Vegetable Weekend: 10th - 11th August, 11am - 4pm

If you love growing your own food then Barnsdale is the place to be this weekend.


We'll be opening up the productive areas that are normally off-limits to visitors, and our expert grower will be available to advise you on your own veggie production and chat about her favourite subject.


If you’ve visited us earlier in the year you’ll enjoy seeing our crops coming to fruition, and if you come along on Sunday, Susie will lead tours of Barnsdale's veg and fruit growing areas, at 12pm & 2pm.


The Helenium Tea Room kitchen will provide tasty bites to try all made from our produce and children can take part in potting/sowing their own vegetable plants to take home.

Our vegetables grower-in-chief, Susie, will lead tours of Barnsdale's fruit and veg growing areas, at 12pm & 2pm.
