AGM 2023 & Presentation/Panel Discussion at Purley Barn
Wednesday, 11th October 7.00pm


We welcome you to a lively panel presentation and discussion on the opportunites and challenges of restoring and creating new gardens within private historic settings

Following the formal Annual General Meeting (AGM), our Autumn Event this year will be another special evening and a bit different with a celebration of what can be achieved by inspired garden designers at their own homes.  Do join us whilst enjoying a glass of wine and nibbles.

We are extremely pleased that Willie Hartley-Russell DL, owner of Bucklebury House, Bucklebury; Niamh Kendall, owner of Kidmore House, Kidmore End; and Bruce Ginsberg, owner of Earlestone Manor, Burghclere; have all kindly agreed to share their experiences of creating a new garden in their delightful historic properties and to answer our questions on how they achieved the wonderful gardens we visited in 2022
