The Friends group holds a number of events throughout the year.  Click on the tabs below to find out what's going on and how you can get involved. 

There are always opportunities to volunteer in the garden and it's a great way to get involved, get fit, meet people, learn new skills and contribute to the preservation of his amazing historic landscape.  Whatever your skills and availability we should have something to suit you; some roles involve horticultural work while some focus on supporting our visitors, carrying out research and so on.  If  you're interested in volunteering in the garden please contact Ashleigh Catalina on  You do not need to be a member of the Friends group to volunteer in the garden, but do consider joining us anyway!
