To visit the Gardens, Gallery and House, you no longer need to pre-book a timed admission slot online (simply purchase gardens admission on arrival). Summer Late openings take place every Wednesday evening.
Had a productive meeting this morning to ensure we are all singing off the same hymn sheet as the date of the first night of Illumina looms large....
We are having a Press Night on the Thursday which will be a great opportunity to have a dry run for the Team. Ulf is well organised with all the set up - miles of cable! The Gardeners are making sure between weddings and rain that the gardens all look fabulous, mowing, trimming and all that, throughout.
We have been thrilled at the response to our Newsletter call for volunteers to help on the nights and ticket sales are going well. There is definitely an exciting buzz around the organisation of the event. It's a whole new experience for Hestercombe and we are ready and sure all six nights (7, 8, 9, 10 & 14, 15, 16 September) will be a roaring success! Better book soon! www.hestercombe.com
