Touring theatre company, the Three Inch Fools are returning to Stone Lane Gardens on 24th August with an open air performance of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Back by popular demand, this open air performance is fun for all the family, so bring a seat and a picnic and enjoy!

This is one of several events coming up at Stone Lane Gardens this year, in October, the gardens will be open as part of the National Open Gardens Schemes, when all visitor entry proceeds are donated to the NGS’s chosen charities for the year. Taking place on 8th and 15th October, the Stone Lane Gardens’ tearooms will be open especially for visitors on those two Saturdays providing tea, cake and other delicious refreshments.

The following month in November, Stone Lane Gardens’ specialist tree nursery will be in full swing, packing birch and alder saplings to be sent out to gardens, both domestic and professional all over the country. The Garden’s full range of rare and unusual specimens can be viewed on the website ready for reservation and purchase at any time of the year and Paul Bartlett, the knowledgeable gardens’ manager, will be available to give advice on seasonal planting and species choice when requested. You can also find details for performances of Twelfth Night from the website and buy your tickets ready.
