Join us for 18th century games, gardening fun, cake and a train ride!

The Gardens Trust Family Picnic 2018 will be a very special affair as we join with Northamptonshire Gardens Trust at Wicksteed Park to celebrate the bicentenary of Humphry Repton.

Wicksteed Park is a much-loved leisure park with playground and rides that was created in the grounds of Barton Seagrave, for which Repton created a Red Book hundreds of years ago – a park with a story!

This day is open to all – young and old, Gardens Trust members and non-members, and offers a chance to join friends and family for Traditional Garden Games that Humphry would have known from the 18th century, a Giggly & Greenfingered gardening project to take home, celebratory cake, a tour of this unique park, and a ride on Wicksteed Park’s fabulous model railway.

Bring your own picnic, and dress up warm!

Tickets are £5 per person and can be booked through hello@wickstedepark.org, babes in arms free of charge. Games and activities recommended for the over-3s.

We look forward to seeing you!
