Our Events Committee organises an exciting programme of lectures, garden visits and study days throughout the year. These events provide an opportunity for members to learn more about the beauty, character and historical significance of the gardens and landscapes in Surrey and surrounding counties. The winter lectures are informative and entertaining discussions about various aspects of garden history, design and horticulture. These lectures are given by enthusiastic speakers well known in their respective fields and have included individuals such as Michael Symes, Richard Bisgrove, Steffie Shields, Jill Raggett, Val Bott and SGT members Beryl Saich and Cherrill Sands.
The Study Days can range in focus from 'John Evelyn, the Renaissance Man and his Garden' including visits to Albury Park and Wotton House to the Bicentenary Celebrations of Humphry Repton held at Hatchlands Park and Betchworth House. Our events give members an opportunity to enjoy and share their enthusiasm, knowledge and curiosity in historic gardens and landscapes.
Members (and their guests when permitted) are advised to book events in advance as spaces can sometimes be limited, particularly for garden visits that are not normally open to the public.
