Meet the Sissinghurst Scholars, offering a rare opportunity to engage with team members of one of England's most iconic gardens.

Talks will alternate between 'Sissinghurst Scholars' and 'Growing Scholars'. Explore Sissinghurst through talks by its 'Sissinghurst Scholars': the experts tending to the historic gardens, preserving their beauty and heritage.

Meet the Sissinghurst Scholar on 8th May, 5th June and 24th July.

Meet the Growing Scholar on 24th April, 29th May, 19th June and 7th August.

Learn about sustainable practices and plant growth from the 'Growing Scholars' supporting the vegetable garden and nursery.

This event offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the daily lives of the scholars, showcasing their passion, expertise, and ongoing projects at Sissinghurst.

Learn first-hand about the scholarship programme designed to cultivate the Head Gardeners of the future. Generously funded by donations and legacies, this scholarship aims to nurture talent and preserve Sissinghurst's legacy for generations to come.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be reinvested into the scholarship, ensuring its sustainability and enabling future scholars to continue their vital work.

While the standard ticket price is £15, we encourage additional donations to support this worthy cause and contribute to the preservation of Sissinghurst's heritage.
