NGS garden opening and brewery open day in the heart of Hockney Country

NGS garden opening and brewery open day in the heart of Hockney Country
Visitors to the popular Yellow Book garden Hunmanby Grange on the Yorkshire Wolds will get extra value for money on the Diamond Jubilee holiday weekend of 2ndand 3rdJune when the opening of the garden coincides with the annual open day for award winning East Yorkshire micro-brewery, Wold Top Brewery.

For just £3.50 visitors will be able to tour the beautiful and interesting garden that Gill Mellor has created despite its exposure to the elements and a challenging soil. Gill will share her stories about how the garden has evolved over a quarter of a century into a series of gardens that have been developed depending on shelter, aspect, views and need. There will also be plants on sale.

Visitors to the micro-brewery will see where and how the award-winning ales are made and will be able to talk to the brewery team about what makes Wold Top’s ales so special. There will also be special offers on bottled beers and refreshments will be available.

The gardens and the brewery will be open between 11am and 5pm on both days and proceeds from the entry money will go via the NGS to charity. St. Cuthbert’s church in Burton Fleming will benefit from the proceeds from the refreshments.

NGS gardens across England and Wales welcome over 750,000 visitors a year to 3,700 gardens of quality, character and interest and raise over £2.5 million each year for nursing, caring and gardening charities.
