We are delighted to be returning to this brilliant venue in Nottinghamshire. Last year over 1000 people came and browsed the wonderful plants from 22 nurseries and garden artisans and why not when entry, parking and access to the galleries and garden are completely free! We have just as many great stalls booked this year.

The Patchings Garden will just be opening for the year and you can discover a myriad of insects and wildlife as you meander along the grass paths. Access is free and there are painting opportunities for groups or individual sessions – please ask for for details of the painting ticket.

There is a group of independent artists and crafts people working from their own studios at Patchings. There are also galleries and an artist's shop

Café Patchings will be open serving wholesome home cooked food.
