Festival of Blossom at Mompesson House

Celebrate blossom this spring at Mompesson House with free activities from 22 March to 4 June.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Mompesson is very proud to celebrate the National Trust Festival of Blossom . The festival aims to bring nature to people who might not be able to experience it otherwise. At Mompesson our focus is going to be on people with dementia and families with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) children. The Festival of Blossom will provide a free map with a self-led sensory trail of some of the blossom trees of the Cathedral Close. We’ll also be offering free workshops and activities at Mompesson from late April to May, as well as providing early access to people with dementia or SEND children before the house opens. We’ll have community “Blossom Bunting” on the railings, where people can add their own handmade blossoms.
