Garden Gadabout

The Garden Gadabout in aid of The Sussex Beacon, a charity for men, women and families affected by HIV, takes place on Saturday & Sunday 21-22 and 28-29 June 2014 from 11am – 5pm each day.

The seed for The Garden Gadabout was sown 20 years ago, with a small number of local gardens opening to raise funds for The Sussex Beacon. The event has since blossomed into one of the largest open garden schemes in Sussex.

More than 40 private gardens and community spaces are taking part, from small city courtyards to expansive open spaces in Hove, Montpelier, Fiveways and Roundhill, Preston Park and Surrenden, Stanmer, East of Brighton, and coastal areas.

Many of the gardeners will be providing gorgeous cakes, lunches and refreshments, and even a glass of Pimms! Local gardens include 7 Crown Gardens, St Nicholas Rest Gardens, Brighthelm Community Garden, and 3 Trafalgar Terrace.

Details of the gardens are in the colourful brochure, available from local cafés, shops and venues, and the gardens are all listed online at
