The events group organises an annual programme of talks and visits to public and private parks, gardens and other designed landscapes in the county (and occasionally to neighbouring counties).

If you have any suggestions for visits or talks we'd really like to hear from you. For more information email:  events@lancsgt.org.uk

The Fountains of Rome

Wednesday 22nd November

At Whittle-le-Woods Village Hall, Union Street PR6 7LN
 12 noon

The gardens around Rome were designed to impress; cardinals vied with each other to be chosen as Pope and their families spent enormous sums surrounding their candidate with scenery that conveyed a strong message.
They engaged the most skilful water engineers, architects and sculptors, who rose to great heights of artistry. These sumptuous places still fill us with awe today.

Ninfa is a magical, fairy-tale place. A deserted village lay waiting for the spell to be broken, and along came an Italian count with an English wife. They and their descendants have created a rambling, romantic garden where the ruins are clothed with roses.

Gardens Trust Members Meet Up  

The Gardens Trust are holding a Regional Forum (re-named Meet-up) on 1st December; it's specifically for northern CGTs, and when it was held in York there were over 20 people there - many from Yorkshire Gardens Trust. This time it will be in Lancashire, and we hope a good group of our members will attend.
It's a free event, with a suggested donation of £7 for lunch and refreshments (payable on the day) and is a great opportunity to network with other County Gardens Trusts, sharing news, ideas and problems. Please find a link to the booking form below, which should be returned to tamsinmcmillan@thegardenstrust.org.
The Meet Up will be divided into subject areas (conservation, education, and research and recording) with a highlight speaker from a CGT for each. 
Our highlight speakers will be:

- Elaine Taylor, Lancashire GT, on Thomas Mawson restoration projects in the NW;
- Yorkshire GT, on its education programme; and
- Chris Gallagher, Shropshire GT, on planning issues.

Booking form available here
