Visit Hopton Hall, it’s rose gardens and café during the Month of Art from Saturday 1st July. The garden is open from 10:30 – 16:00 every Thursday to Sunday. Along with the 2km rose garden walk, Café Impromptu, part of the same group as Hopton Hall, has a 75 seat restaurant open in the grounds.

Some of the artists planned to attend Hopton Hall include:

Vice President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Haidee-Jo Summers
Kathryn Watson
Jo Polmear
Jenny Aitken

Martin Sloman
Mandy-Jayne Ahlfors
Liz Wellby

At the end of July both a professional and an amateur artist will be awarded with a £1,000 commission to be permanently displayed at Hopton Hall. To take part in the Month of Art, simply turn up and get creative.

Hopton Hall is well known for its crinkle crankle wall, that inspired the Duchess of Devonshire to create Chatsworth Estate’s Serpentine Hedges in 1953. The garden features British and French roses that use the shelter of the crinkle crankle wall to create rich and fragrant scents.

Entry is £5 per adult and £2.50 per child aged 6 to 16. Parking is free of charge. For more information, visit
