Over 100 gardens set to Embrace Snowdrop Festival

The National Gardens Scheme is excited to invite members of the public to enjoy its first ever Snowdrop Festival in February 2016.

The Festival will see more than one hundred gardens open across England and Wales through the month of February, giving visitors the opportunity to see veritable carpets of beautiful snowdrops and watch spring slowly unfurl from winter. Supported by Visit England, the Snowdrop Festival will kick-off Visit England’s ‘Year of the English Garden 2016’ campaign.

And you don’t have to be a ‘galanthophile’ to enjoy the Snowdrop Festival. George Plumptre, Chief Executive of The National Gardens Scheme, says: “With not very much to do outside at this time of year, a visit to a Snowdrop Festival garden is the perfect way to get some fresh air and really start looking forward to Spring. Whether you want to admire the different varieties of snowdrops or just have a walk in lovely surroundings, visiting a National Gardens Scheme garden in February will be the perfect escape.”

Visitors to Snowdrop Festival gardens will also have the benefit of knowing that their entrance fee is supporting wonderful causes; the National Gardens Scheme currently donates over £2.6 million annually to its nursing and caring beneficiary charities, which include Marie Curie and Carers Trust.
