Visit the wonderful setting of Hellens Manor in Much Marcle, Herefordshire this year on June 10 & 11 and find the beautiful garden and parklands brought to life with Hellens Garden Festival 2017.
The magnificent Hellens Garden Festival is now in its 11th year and a firm favourite for families, gardeners and general moochers looking for something a little different, this year with a theme of ‘Growing Today for all our Tomorrows’
There will be speakers, walks & talks, Music, Workshops, Demonstrations and children’s events. Also lots of exhibitors and organisations for you to chat to and perhaps make that special purchase.
This year there will also be the opportunity for visitors to be part of a community land artwork project, the creation of a Mandala. Kate Raggett, a leading land artist, is designing and drawing the outline of this special piece of work, laid out within the gardens of Hellens. Visitors will be invited to complete the drawn mandala over the 2 days by using natural, recycled, reused and re-purposed items [such a bottle tops] provided on site and visitors will be encouraged to carefully and thoughtfully, fill in the laid out Mandala pattern, from these pre-gathered items. There will be a photo of the finished Mandala published on the Hellens festival website shortly after the event. All the materials used in the mandala will then be recycled and re-used responsibly.
