Join us for coffee with The Heseltines in the stunning surroundings of the Gainsborough hotel. Thenford: The Creation of an English Garden is the story of former Deputy Prime Minister, Michael and his wife, Anne Heseltine’s garden and their family over 40 years. They will give an illustrated talk about how they transformed a wild, overgrown, dilapidated woodland into the present magnificent garden with an arboretum, thousands of rare plants and a sculpture garden with work ranging from a marble Tazza fountain to a statue of Lenin. Beautifully illustrated with both professional photographs and private family images, this personal story of the creation of an extraordinary garden will delight horticultural experts and novices alike.
