A whole day at Wollerton

The Wollerton Old Hall Garden Lectures are an opportunity to visit the garden when it is not normally open.  Stimulating lectures are given by experts in their own field.  The day starts at 10.30am with coffee and biscuits and then the lecture will commence at 11.00am, after which wine will be served.  A 3-course seasonal lunch of home-cooked food will be served in the Courtyard Tea Room. Visitors are then free to explore the gardens and John and Lesley Jenkins will be on hand to answer any questions on gardening.  The day finishes at 3.30pm with tea and cake.
