The bi-annual Writtle Gardens Open Day is all set for another successful event on Sunday 9th June. At our last open day in 2017 more than a 1200 visitors attended and helped raise £8,500 to support the upkeep of our local church. As well as the regular favourites, a further six new gardens will be on show this year. Visitors are encouraged to make an early start in order to see everything.

As well as the open gardens there will be a Floral Display inside All Saints Church by students from Writtle University College’s floristry department and an exhibition by the Writtle Art Group in the Village Hall. Afternoon refreshments will be available around the village, including a ploughman’s lunch in the Christian Centre and afternoon teas in the Village Hall.

Please note that Writtle has limited parking, so we advise any disabled visitors to arrive early. In addition to the central village car park, additional parking is available at Writtle University College’s Lordship Road car park and at the entrance to Brewhouse Hoppit, behind the Co-op in Bridge Street.
