This key event of the Crosspool Festival, which has run without a break for sixteen years, is in danger this year of being cancelled.

Several of our regular gardens are unable to open this year.
We need new gardens to fill the gap.
Open Gardens is on Saturday 29th June, and you can use it to raise money for your favourite charity.
