Returning to Forde Abbey in 2018 – Toby’s Harvest Festival. After a successful first year in September 2017, we can’t wait to do it all again! Join us on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September.
SUCCESS! Our fifth year of Toby’s Garden Festival was so much fun! Look out for the dates for next year’s event – early bird tickets will be on sale towards the end of the year.
Who’s speaking at Forde Abbey in 2018?
Coming up in September we are welcoming some fabulous garden speakers and experts! We’re delighted that actor John Challis, better known as Boycie from Only Fools & Horses was so popular with Powderham visitors we have lured him back to be with us at Forde Abbey, plus we have the wonderful Alys Fowler, RHS judge Jim Buttress, Matt Biggs of Gardeners’ Question Time fame and… drum roll…. the Blue Peter Gardener!
Plus the demo tipi makes welcome comeback with NEW workshops on paper-flower making with Wildhive’s Bee Watson, photography lessons with Andrew Maybury, tree talks from Kevin Croucher of Thornhayes Nursery plus all the favourites from last year – cider-drinking, apple-pressing, basket-weaving and much more to be announced in the coming months
