Our events are all about getting the different parts of the local community involved in the Gardens. The Easter Egg Hunt (2003) was the first event FSPG created. This was followed swiftly by the Fireworks in 2004 and then with the aid of the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Park Warden we started the Teddy Bear’s Picnic, the Over 60s’ Tea and supported the Music Festival. We also took over the organisation of the annual picnic, which was first started in the 1970s!
The events are vital to us as fundraisers but more importantly they involve local people in the Gardens.
**Please note: changes to dates and times sometimes occur at short notice, be sure to always check with the contacts for the course before attending. Thank you for understanding.**
