Chichele Garden Fair

Saturday 26 May – 9am to 3pm

'Our Heritage' is the theme for this year's fair.

As well as many plants and garden items for sale, the Garden Fair offers:

  • craft demonstration by Colemans Craft Warehouse
  • children’s activity – Pot decorating and planting by Wyevale Garden Centre
  • display of Higham Ferrers through the Ages from Roman to Victorian Scarecrows by Higham Ferrers Junior School, sponsored by Waitrose.

In the College building we are delighted to:

  • launch the Northamptonshire Gardens Trust Humphry Repton Exhibition to celebrate the bicentenary of this great landscape gardener, who produced Red Books for Finedon Hall and Barton Hall
  • display of art by local children – the Art Competitions will be sponsored by Colemans; for younger children the theme will be The Buildings of Higham Ferrers and for the Ferrers School students, A Flavour of Higham Ferrers.
