Durham City in Blossom 2024: Blossom picnic weekend

We're gathering in the orchard to celebrate apple blossom time. Everyone's invited!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Grab a picnic blanket or pull up a deckchair and enjoy some live music outdoors while the apple blossom is in bloom. Feeling peckish? Enjoy a takeaway cream tea from the café or bring a picnic to munch on.

This event is free, but normal admission charges to the gardens apply.

The Durham City in Blossom 2024 programme is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
