Sunday 24th June 2018

For your enjoyment on Sunday June 24th, 23 private Chorlton gardens are opening to the public from 11am to 5pm, plus a communal alleyway and communal allotment.  There are 5 new gardens, one of which also opens for the National Garden Scheme. All that, plus the Unicorn is opening its roof garden again, and a plant swap will take place on the community garden next to Chorlton Library.

Buy a programme, come along, and meet some of Chorlton’s passionate gardeners.

Refreshments will be on offer in some gardens.

Your ticket is a programme giving you access to all the gardens and sites, allowing you a once a year opportunity to discover Chorlton’s hidden gems and be inspired by its many different and beautiful spaces. Your ticket is excellent value: the £5 cost hasn’t changed since 2011!

Programmes will be on sale from mid May from Creative Recycling, Chorlton Bookshop, Blossom Florists and Chorlton Plant Nursery, plus outside the Unicorn in June at the weekend. On Sunday 24th itself you can pick one up from Unicorn, Chorlton Plant Nursery and Creative Recycling, or from one of the gardens (look out for the balloons and posters).
