Music in the Garden at Hazelby House, Hampshire – Friday, 21st June

Friday 21st June, 6.30pm – 9.00pm

Tickets £35. Entrance by pre-booked tickets only.

Our midsummer garden party will be opened by National Garden Scheme president and nation’s favourite baker, Mary Berry and you will have exclusive access to explore the exceptional 12-acre private garden, serenaded by soul singer Natasha Watts and the East Woodhay Silver Band. As you wander through the garden you can enjoy chilled Provence rosé wine served from magnums and a selection of delicious canapes.

The garden at Hazelby is one of the most distinguished in the region, not least because it was originally created by Martin Lane-Fox who lived here in the 1980s and 1990’s.  He created the classically formal structure and planting which the Hungerfords have built on in exhilarating style, opening the garden up to a new lake and adding a range of superb ornaments including works by David Harber and William Pye.

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy a truly remarkable garden on a summer’s evening.
