Swanland Open Gardens

Swanland Open Gardens are normally held every
two years as part of Swanland Festival.

If you would like to open your garden then contact Mal Cracknell or website@swanland.info. Its never too early!

Its really quite good fun and you will meet lots of interesting people.

Open Gardens 2018

Thank You to the garden owners in the 2018 Open Garden event and also also to the tickets sellers and the many helpers on the day.

Visitor numbers were down compared to 2016 when 340 visitors toured the gardens. In 2018 we had 212 visitors. Nearby attractions didn't help… the Hessle Feast, Skidby Scarecrow Festival and the Avenues Open Garden event. On the previous 4 Sundays Open Garden events where held in North Ferriby, Welton, Cottingham, & Brough.

I’ve been asked to organise an open garden event in Spring 2019. I’ve been in contact with one of the organisers of the Hessle West Open Gardens; they will probably hold their next years event on Sunday May 19th - it will be decided in November. We could hold ours on Sunday 12 May or Sunday 26th May. Please register your interest with me.

Best wishes

Mal Cracknell
