Three Hungry Boys
Tickets: £6.50 pre booked or £7 on the day. Kids go free.
Saturday 14th April
Sunday 15th April
The private gardens are firmly shut to the curious public
throughout the year but will open up their historic garden – the largest in
Cornwall for chairty. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘Three Hungry Boys’ Tim,
Thom and Trev will be opening the event after they discovered Tregothnan last
year on their quest.
Now, I know nothing about plants except I cannot keep them
alive (even a cactus – which is severely disappointing) but I do love tea. As
the only tea plantation in England this is surely worth a visit. Tregothnan are
a safe sanctuary for rare, endangered and exotic plants.
Raising money for The Crisis Fund & Cornwall Federation
of Young farmers’ Clubs there will be tea tastings, cream teas & lunches
kicking about. There will also be live music and a classic car display – a bit
Driving Miss Daisy perhaps?
Early bird tickets are £6.50 or £7 on the day with children
& dogs of leads free. Venture down to the secret garden and see what magic
you can unearth…
