BGHG Programme of Events 2019
The year opens with our Annual Study Day on Saturday 16 March: the topic this year is Music and Gardens – details below.
Our Programme of Garden Visits starts on 11 April with a whole-day visit to gardens in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, and runs through to October when there will be a Study Visit to Upton House in Warwickshire.
The 2019 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, when space allows, may also book for a friend.
