Spring Garden Open Day 2016

Spring Garden Open Day 2016

Published: 04 April 2016

Despite the un-springlike mizzle, people turned up to explore Sharpham House and gardens on our Spring Garden Open Day on Sunday April 3.

We hosted mindfulness taster sessions, garden and foraging walks, House tours and children's crafts.

More than 200 people turned up to enjoy Sharpham, braving the damp but still appreciating our fantastic location.

Our next Open day is on Sunday July 3.

Here's the interview done by BBC Radio Devon on the day, followed by footage of Alex Knight, realising his dream of enjoying the Sharpham stairwell acoustics, at the end of the event:
