Biannual open gardens event returns to Ripon

The open gardens event in Mickley near Ripon.

Some of the region's finest gardens will be on parade this summer for an Open Gardens event near Ripon.

The village of Mickley will welcome visitors on Sunday 23rd June.

A colourful collection of outdoor spaces in a wide range of sizes and styles will be on display, from cottage gardens with their casual planting and old-fashioned floral favourites to modern landscaped affairs with bold architectural features.

The day will run from 11am to 4.30pm, with a plant stall and ice-creams, coffees, lunches and afternoon teas served in the village hall. 

There will also be a barbecue for a spot of al fresco dining and a Prosecco stand.

All proceeds will be donated to St John’s Church in Mickley and Marie Curie.

Deborah Hayward of the organising committee said:

“The village boasts some truly spectacular gardens and June is a great time to see them. 

“We have got something to delight and inspire everyone, so we hope that as many people as possible will pay us a visit. 

“The event happens only once every two years, so this is an opportunity not to be missed.”

Due to a poor mobile signal in the village, the Open Gardens will be a cash-only event.
