FORUM 2013
OCTOBER 5TH
ATTINGHAM PARK, SHROPSHIRE

EVENT NOW FULL

We can now announce the venue and date for this year's Forum - it will be held at Attingham Park in Shropshire on the 5th October. Attingham is a National Trust property, where there is a large walled garden (just under two acres) and a smaller frame-yard with working glasshouses, back-sheds and bothy. This is an on-going restoration project, which has so far brought three of the quarters of the garden back into full productivity. So make a note in your diary - more details will be announced in due course.
