Book your ticket

Come along to our Planting for the Future workshop at Lotherton, as part of a series of events to complement the community co-curated exhibition Homes of the Gascoignes.

The workshop will begin with a theatrical performance from Sir Thomas Gascoigne. He will share secrets of Parlington Hall, the former seat of the Gascoigne family, which is just around the corner from Lotherton.

The performance will be followed by tea and cakes and you will then have the opportunity to learn about conservation gardening from Sir Thomas’s gardener, John Kennedy. You will also be given a sapling Silver Birch tree to take home.

Booking is required for this event and your ticket will include entry to the estate.
