Alde Valley Spring Festival

The Spring Festival Exhibition adopts the theme of “Florabundance : A Celebration of Gardens, Plants and Produce”.

The idea is for the Festival Programme as a whole to look at the many ways in which we breed or cultivate plants; how we relate to them; how we select certain specimens to provide names and official descriptions; and how discovering and naming of plants becomes an adventure in itself.

The Exhibition also seeks to honour their presence in our gardens and landscape and celebrate the importance of plants in our lives – alongside natural pollinators and seed carriers - through the work of selected guest artists, including Alice-Andrea Ewing, Perienne Christian, Marchela Dimitrova, Emma Green, Jelly Green, Lily Hunter Green, Maggi Hambling, Becky Munting, Tessa Newcomb, Ruth Stage, Emma Tennant.
There will be open studios in the back yard (open at weekends), with makers demonstrating their craftmanship, including chairmakers, bespoke bags, silversmithing, ceramics, and hand made knives.

Farm suppers by chef Peter Harrison with guests of honour from the writing residencies, each Thursday evening through the festival (booking essential), talks and nature walks.



The Hedge Quarter Tea rooms are open at weekends serving delicious cakes and pastries by The Great Glemham Bake 10am -6pm
