What's in bloom?
Spring theatre displays begin
Auriculas are now in bloom and are being added to the Auricula Theatre. This display area was built in 1830. They were once common-place in stately homes but as tastes changed they were destroyed. The Auricula Theatre at Calke Abbey is unique as it is the only surviving example in the country.
Meet the Gardeners
Calke gardens look spectacular throughout the year thanks to our gardeners and garden volunteers. It's not all about plants and trees they know about the history of the gardens too.
