The Great British Summer Garden Fete – Sunday 22nd July 2018 10:30 – 16:00
Turn back the clock and enjoy English tradition at its best at the Great British Summer Garden Fete, being held in the stunning surroundings of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park this July. This fabulous family-friendly day out is brought to you by Miss Ivy Events and will provide a whole host of fun and entertainment for young and not so young alike.
There will be lots to see and do – an extensive array of crafts will be on display at the many artisan stalls, providing tempting opportunities to purchase unique and unusual gifts – you can even try your hand at getting creative yourself at one of the workshops taking place during the day.
There will be entertainment with performances by students from the Plymouth-based Hartley House Dance Club and great live music from stunning jazz artist Becky Brine and singer and guitarist Harry Quick.
The children will have a wonderful time with the bouncy castle, circus workshops and traditional games and don’t forget to bring Fido along too – there will be a fun charity dog show to enjoy as well.
Delicious food and drink will be served throughout the day – and it wouldn’t be a summer garden fete without that most British of summer drinks – Pimms, which will be available at the hugely popular Pimms Bar.
The Great British Summer Garden Fete will be staged at the bottom of the park near the Orangery. Right by the sea and overlooking Plymouth Sound. Historic Mount Edgcumbe provides a unique setting for a really memorable day out and it’s easy to get to by road or by ferry from Plymouth (see www.plymouthboattrips.co.uk)
Entry to the fete costs just £3, under 16s free.
Parking charges apply in all car parks at this venue.

Pimms & Picnics Garden Party – Sat 22nd Sept – Sun 23rd Sept 2018 10:30 – 17:30
Imagine mystical woodlands, smugglers’ coves and a historic mansion built nearly 100 years before the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth to America – it’s the perfect setting for a magical garden party that will charm and delight during every moment of the day.
Surprise and a growing sense of anticipation will be the buzz around Mount Edgcumbe’s Pimms & Picnics Garden Party, which takes place in the ancient Grade I Listed house and stunning Earl’s Gardens during the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, September 22 and 23.
Around every corner there will be something new to experience, whether it’s a daring circus performer, a selection of different dance groups positively fizzing with energy, a story teller enthralling the children with tales of mystery and suspense or a magical character popping out to say hello!
An exciting range of hugely talented musical performers will be entertaining visitors – some on small intimate stages, others playing to the crowds. There will be an eclectic range of artisan makers and producers to discover. And when it comes to refreshments, there is the extra special Earl’s Tea Party to enjoy, to say nothing of a distinctly celebratory Gin and Prosecco Bar.
A packed programme of entertainment to delight the whole family will be running throughout the weekend – the imagination of organisers Miss Ivy Events has been running completely wild with ideas, so be prepared to spend the whole day in this idyllic setting – bring the picnic blanket and let the surprises commence!
