Mary Berry joins us to mark our 90th anniversary, where we will once again open the doors to the Royal Geographical Society for an evening of horticultural delight on October 31st. This a special evening entitled: The Glory of the Garden: 90 Years of the National Garden Scheme.

Also joining Mary Berry on the night shall be Lord Ashbrook; four generations of whose family have opened the garden of Arley Hall, Cheshire since 1927 and Daily Telegraph gardens columnist Stephen Lacey. All three will talk about opening and visiting gardens, sharing stories and memories from across our 90 years. After the talks NGS Chief Executive, George Plumptre, will chair a Q & A with our guest speakers and the audience.

The evening will start promptly at 7pm with doors opening at 6pm for a cash bar. Tickets cost £20 and because the event is being generously sponsored by Investec Wealth & Investment all sales will go to the National Garden Scheme. Tickets can be purchased here.
