Sussex Beacon Gardens

Brighton & Hove Open Gardens, a weekend-long event raising money for Sussex Beacon, the HIV Charity, takes place on Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30 from 11am.

More than 70 private gardens and community spaces have already signed up from small city courtyards to expansive open spaces in Hove, Montpelier, Fiveways and Roundhill, Preston Park and Surrenden, Stanmer, East of Brighton, Rottingdean and Newhaven. Many of the gardeners will be providing tea, cakes and other refreshments.

Bridgette Saunders, Gardens Coordinator, said:

“Almost 18 years ago the seed for the Brighton & Hove Open Gardens was sown, with a small number of local gardens opening to raise funds for The Sussex Beacon.

“The event has since blossomed into one of the largest open gardens schemes in Sussex with an exciting variety of inspiring and enchanting gardens and community spaces open for one weekend at the end of June.”

Tickets: £10 in advance, £12 over the weekend, under 12s go free.
