Holme Pierrepont Hall – Sunday 7th April 2024

Holme Pierrepont Hall, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham NG12 2LD.

Open from 11am – 4pm.

With Easter being so early, the family have asked me to move the fair back to the first Sunday in April. I do so hope that you will continue to support this beautiful Spring garden with its collections of unusual shrubs and trees. The late Mr. Brackenbury was a keen Spring planter and most of the plants you will see were planted by him and his wife.

We open from 11am – 4pm, with good access for all and once I have all the participants I will post them here.
