Festival of Blossom

Join us as we celebrate the elderflower blossom orchard at Tinkley Gate with free trails, crafts and community art throughout June

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This June we celebrate the blossoming elderflower trees at Tinkley Gate.

Every day, you can follow a free trail through the orchard, learn more about these trees and discover hammocks to relax under the blooms.

Borrow a free backpack of art materials from the bookstore to create your own masterpiece inspired by the flowers. Find the blossom poetry...can you write a poem of your own?

On June weekends, from 10am - 2pm, paint a pollinator with us and add your thumbprint to a community art piece as we create a blossom tree together.

It's going to be blooming great!
