Hogarth’s House Open Garden
Part of the Open Gardens Squares weekend
Hogarth's House is taking part for the first time in the London Parks & Gardens Trust's Open Garden Squares Weekend on Saturday June 9 and Sunday June 10.
The garden was originally a walled orchard and contains a mulberry tree which may be older than the House. It will be open as usual between 12 noon and 5pm. On Saturday June 9 at 2.30pm, Val Bott will talk about her research on the garden for the recent redisplay of the House and her study of 18th century Chiswick nursery gardeners. On Sunday, June 10, students from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art will put on performances at 3pm and 4pm.
The gardens at Sutton Court, Emery Walker’s House and the walled garden at Chiswick House will also be open on Sunday afternoon 2-5pm.
Tickets giving admission to the whole weekend of open gardens, can be purchased online for 12 at www.opensquares.eventbrite.co.uk
