Enjoy music in the gardens

Enjoy music in the gardens

It wouldn't be a garden party without brilliant, summer music. We welcome the return of the Polka Dots with their sets of familiar songs and a top selection of foot-tapping hits to while away the summer day. Plus, duo Jessica Rhodes will perform their own soulful, unique versions of top chart hits from across the decades. Take time out to sit back in a deckchair, with a glass of Pimm's and enjoy!

On Saturday and Sunday, we'll take a short break from the music on the bandstand to host an action-packed gardening show for the children, with Lee Connolly, AKA the Skinny Jean Gardener. More details to follow.
