May Open Day: Art and Nature in the Gardens
Date And Time

The Gardens of Easton Lodge

With spring in the air, there will be a pop up art exhibition and lots of nature activities for visitors, lead by an experienced biologist. Advance tickets can be purchased here.

Local artist Jane Frederick will be presenting her work from her time as Artist in Residence at Essex Gardens Trust. Her Garden Seekers exhibition provides an artistic lens on 6 historic gardens in Essex, including Easton Lodge. Her works explore how manmade optical interventions can draw us deeper into gardens and their history.

Nature activities will include pond dipping, bug hunting, owl pellet dissection and foraging and making cord with local bushcraft expert. Essex Bat Group will be with us to explain about the lives of the bats that frequent the Gardens; and local coppicers. Children and their adults will also enjoy a trail, the treehouse and the Gardens in vivid green and spring colours.

Hot bacon/cheese/hummus rolls, homemade cakes and hot and cold drinks.

Adult entry £5.50 if bought in advance or £6.50 on the gate. Tickets available here.
Children under 16 FREE
Dogs on leads welcome.

Advance tickets will be refunded if the Trust has to decide the Gardens cannot open, due to a significant risk to visitors and volunteers, for example from adverse weather or very poor ground conditions.
