The UK’s Largest Charity Garden Opening Dates 2014

Plans are in full swing as we prepare for the UK’s largest Charity Garden Open Weekend, which will be held on 12th and 13th April this year. Open for one weekend only, visitors are invited to explore Tregothnan’s expansive gardens of mountainous magnolias, ancient camellias, and the largest rhododendrons in the world.

This year Tregothnan’s chosen charity is Young People Cornwall, which reaches over 8000 young people in the county. Through programmes, projects and youth group support, the charity has been giving young people a voice, building their confidence, boosting their creativity and helping them open doors for the last forty years.

We believe that Young People Cornwall is a unique Cornish charity, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.  YPC has been successfully working with 11-25 year olds, encouraging thousands of young people to reach their potential by delivering inspirational youth work which supports their needs and aspirations.

Also available will be Cornish cream teas, Salcombe Dairy ice creams, estate-reared meat cooked on a barbecue over Tregothnan charcoal, and delicious homemade lunches. Musical entertainment, children’s activities, games, demonstrations and a classic car display are also sure to keep visitors entertained throughout the weekend.

Earlybird tickets for 2015 are available online by clicking here. Children under 16 are free and dogs on leads welcome.
