Shake off those winter blues with a visit to Derby College’s Winter Garden Event and Craft Fair!

Derby College is opening its stunning winter garden to the public during a special open-day event and craft fair taking place next month.

The winter garden located at the college’s Broomfield Hall campus, will showcase vibrant displays of winter flowers, colourful stems, imaginative planting displays and heady scent.

As well as wandering through the winter gardens, visitors can also wander the 25 acres of constantly developing educational Victorian gardens and woodlands maintained by volunteers and students.

Gardening experts will be on hand to offer advice, plus there will be opportunity to buy seasonal plants and shrubs. There will also be free tours of the garden throughout the day and the chance to visit the Old Hall. Most areas on site are accessible to wheelchair users.

Samantha Harvey, Derby College Head Gardener said “With spring just around the corner our garden is bursting into life once again and is full of amazing colours and wonderful fragrances. All the team have been working hard to ensure the gardens are looking their best and we’re really excited to welcome people to come and enjoy the beautiful displays.”

We will also be opening up the old hall, so visitors will also be able to browse for gift ideas at the arts and crafts fair taking place during the day, plus the cafe will be open selling a selection of hot snacks and drinks.

This family-friendly event is taking place on Sunday 5th March at Derby College’s Broomfield Hall Campus near Morley from 10am until 4pm. Tickets, which can be bought on the day, are just £5 each, with children admitted free!
