Barrow-upon-Soar Open Gardens

Enjoy a fantastic family weekend around Barrow-upon-Soar

Please note, this event has been organised by a third party to support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

This year, the fantastic event is planning to open at least 20 gardens (one for each year of the 20 years they've been running) of every style, shape and size, large, small, formal, cottage, wildflower, quirky, picture perfect or works in progress in all corners of our lovely village to feature in this fantastic weekend to help raise funds for Rainbows. We are always looking for new openers and if you would like to join us it couldn’t be easier! There is no entry test because gardeners love variety and so if you love your garden then others will too. (Contact Lin Webb – 01509 620285 for more information.)

Also this year we are planning The Great  Barrow Open Gardens Special Exhibition, celebrating the contribution that all of our past and present Openers have made to the life of our village. We are busy collecting memorabilia, pictures and personal recollections from as many people as we can. The exhibition will be curated by Barrow Heritage and open for viewing in a garden as part of the 2019 programme.   

And finally as well as our  usual offer of lovely gardens, delicious food, plant stalls, children’s competitions, raffles  is a very special welcome to all over our Fabulous Family Weekend.  


Tickets cost £4pp and this gets you a programme that acts as a Garden Passport allowing you to view gardens at any point during the open hours for the two days. Accompanied under 14s free. Look out for posters around Barrow-upon-Soar which will show where you can get your tickets from ahead of the day; alternatively buy them on the day.
