THE Bishop’s Palace Country Garden Festival celebrates its 5th year this summer and will once again take over the splendid grounds of The Bishop’s Palace in Wells from June 14-16.

The 14 acres of RHS partner gardens will be at their absolute peak; with parterres filled with the scent of myriad roses and dramatic borders aflame with summer colour, all set amongst the medieval ramparts of the ancient Palace and its famous well pools.

The Country Garden Festival will fill the gardens with a range of stalls, including nurseries with rare and specialist plants, food and drink, garden gadgets and tools and many more, all designed to inspire you to love and use your garden.

There will be a range of garden-themed talks from speakers such as Chris Beardshaw. There will also be an opportunity to join Head Gardener, James Cross, and the garden team from the Palace for a very special Gardeners Question Time.

Live music will be performed on the South Lawn and in the Chapel throughout the Festival, with a variety of top acts from around the South West.

Tickets, which are being sold in aid of The Palace Trust, and they are £9. To book visit or call 01749 988111.
