Bookings only -

Enjoy a fascinating lecture on the history of our estate, once known as Tongswood and find out how history has come full circle to save this important and rare heritage site.

Starting with Flemish clothiers in the 14th Century, we go on to tell you why in the 20th Century we were known as the OXO garden and take you on a wonderful journey right up to today. We have many historical photographs that you will see as the story progresses, bring some tissues, it is rather moving.

We'll end by telling you all about the new technologies we used to rebuild these 140 year old glasshouses in 2018 to ensure that they stand for another 140 years!

Grow Your Own HRT
Saturday 13th April 11am – mid day
Lecture and demonstration £8 per person.

Join Sally J. Duffell for a talk about how to Grow Your Own HRT, with a demonstration and humour all included!

Sally J Duffell is an ex stand-up comic who had to give up her career due to a health condition and got interested in science. Then she was hit by menopause symptoms and she started growing bean and seed sprouts because she knew they contained plant hormones. Then she thought she’d look at the scientific evidence behind it.

She was astonished by what she found. And you will be too.
