We end our Summer Series 2019 with a riot of colour, courtesy of some of our favourite experts in their respective fields. And we couldn’t hope for a better venue for our grand finale – the spectacular Highgrove Royal Gardens, the private gardens of their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
In the thirty years that HRH The Prince of Wales has lived at Highgrove, he has transformed its now-famous gardens. When he first arrived, the grounds consisted of a neglected kitchen garden, an overgrown copse, some pastureland and a few hollow oaks. Following years of hard work, the Prince and his team have created a garden that unfolds in a series of highly personal and inspiring tableaux, each one reflecting the Prince’s interests and enthusiasms.

First you’ll be led by an expert guide in a small group around Highgrove’s beautiful gardens. Take in the magnificence of the Thyme Walk, the serene, otherworldly setting of the Stumpery and the quintessentially English Old Cottage Garden.
Then, while indulging in a champagne afternoon tea, hear Sarah Spiteri and colour consultant Joa Studholme discuss all things colour. Whether she’s crossing continents to conduct home transformations or sitting at a table in Dorset concocting Farrow & Ball’s latest collections, Joa can always be found putting her legendary flair for colour to good use. She’ll be talking about the huge shift in how we use colour at home, and why neutral is no longer the done thing.
There will be plenty of time for questions, before fabulous florist Kitten Grayson shares some of her expertise on creating a natural-looking floral arrangement. Kitten has more than 15 years experience of floristry and horticulture, so her demonstration is not to be missed.
Event details: 2-6pm on 18th September 2019 at Highgrove Royal Gardens, Tetbury, Gloucestershire GL8 8TQ.
