2018 DATES AND VENUES.
2018 welcomes a new garden to explore near the market town of Thirsk. Privately owned and rarely open to the public, Sion Hill Hall is an Arts and Crafts garden and has been lovingly restored over the past 10 years. And we also welcome back the delightful Worsall Hall near Yarm, another private garden, only open for our plant fair. But as you know, all the fairs are held at wonderful venues with full facilities and give you an opportunity to wander through their gardens and grounds.
