This Bank Holiday weekend, Mount Ephraim Gardens will be hosting its annual Pat-a-Lamb event.
Pat-a-Lamb Day has been entertaining young families for 27 years and this year includes a Farmers’ Market as an added attraction. Children can also enjoy special readings of Grimm’s Brothers tales read by the creator of The Pantaloons who regularly perform Shakespeare and Dickens plays in the gardens.
Events Manager for Mount Ephraim, Lucy Dawes, says: “We’re so pleased that Pat-a-Lamb continues to delight visitors, especially young families, after so many years. But this year we wanted to lay on more for all the family with the farmers’ market, story-telling, face-painting, craft and pottery demonstrations and our new animal trail. So we hope to see lots of visitors, both old and new, enjoying the Spring time beauty of the gardens this year.”
Spring is an ideal time to enjoy the beauty of Mount Ephraim Gardens with the glorious blossom in full bloom throughout the gardens and in particular in the magnificent arboretum. The farm’s orchards should also be in bloom for the Bank Holiday. Visitors can also enjoy the ten acres of Edwardian gardens including the Japanese rock garden, water garden, lake and the grass maze ideal for picnics and with a play area for children. The gardens also boast the Woodrose Tea Rooms overlooking the stunning topiary and herbaceous border.
Pat-a-Lamb Day is open from 11am until 5pm on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 May; entry is £6 for adults and £2.50 for children.
