Special Events 

We thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we deal with new government advice and information everyday influencing the safe running of our Special Events programme.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel a few of our events, but we are working with all owners and gardening teams to try and postpone as many events as possible until later in the year. Please work with us by focusing on your own current health and safety and rest assured that we will work to ensure the best possible solution to this very challenging situation regarding these trips in the summer.


Perennial’s new 2020 Special Events garden tour programme features 18 exclusive and stunning gardens to visit including:

  • Arne Maynard’s own garden Allt-y-bela
  • The 52 acre Tusmore Park in Oxfordshire currently being redesigned by Tom Stuart-Smith
  • An amazing 3 day holiday to Scotland including the BBC’s Beechgrove garden and the 8 acre Gordon Castle Walled Garden (Sold out)

This year we’ve seen a 20% increase in the people we’re helping, so your support is needed now more than ever. Our events make fantastic presents for friends and family and you can all enjoy a wonderful day out knowing the money raised has helped us support someone in need.

Hurry! There are limited places available for each event so book now to secure your place in 2020.

Our Special Events Programme is kindly sponsored by Lumley Insurance Limited.
