BGHG Programme of Events 2018
Our 2018 programme starts with our AGM on Wednesday, 21 February, followed the day after by an early ‘snowdrops’ visit and a chance to view the acclaimed winter gardens at Cambridge Botanic Garden and Anglesey Abbey.
On Saturday 17 March the Annual Study Day will this year take place at the School of Pharmacy in Brunswick Square, on the theme of ‘The Paradise Garden’.
Our regular programme of garden visits starts with a whole-day visit to Painshill on 19 April, as a follow-up to last year’s Annual Lecture on Painshill by Cherrill Sands.
The 2018 Programme will close as usual with the Annual Lecture in November. Other events or local visits may be added as the year progresses.
Most of our events are only open to BGHG members, who may also book for a friend. If you would like to join BGHG, and are eligible, please click on the Do Join us link above. Our Study Day and Annual Lecture are open to all.
Some dates have yet to be agreed and will be added as soon as they are confirmed.
