Haddon Hall lecture & cocktails 2017

Arne Maynard, international garden designer best-known for his romantic gardens, each with a unique 'sense of place', will give an evening lecture at Haddon Hall, near Bakewell in Derbyshire, on Thursday 8 June 2017. Arne has been involved with the estate for over 15 years and the redesign of the terraced gardens surrounding the Hall is a continually evolving process. He will speak to guests about 'Evoking the spirit of place in the gardens at Haddon' before joining them for cocktails in the garden.

The talk coincides with the inaugural RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, at which Arne will help to judge the show gardens, and to celebrate Haddon Hall will put on regular garden tours from 7 - 10 June 2017.

Lord and Lady Edward Manners, owners of Haddon Hall, say:

"We are thrilled that Arne will be joining us for this very special event in June. The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show is on our doorstep and we hope visitors travelling to our unique corner of England will be inspired to stay a little longer to explore. Arne's talk will give guests a unique insight into his approach to redesigning the gardens here, bringing his design philosophy to life."

Tickets to Arne's talk are £45 including cocktails and admission to the gardens.

Garden tours throughout the weekend are included in the usual admission fee.
