Take a tour around the beautiful gardens of Ashton Keynes. Meet the homeowners and find out where they have taken inspiration from, the plants and flowers that feature in their gardens.  


Enjoy and cup of tea and a slice of cake whilst you wonder around these inspiring gardens.

You can also meet the very talented artists who live in and around Ashton Keynes. They will be opening up their studios and displaying recent works for you to view or buy.  If you're a budding artist, take this wonderful opportunity to find out more about the materials they use, classes around the local area and the background of the artist.

Ruth Britton (Doveswell, Kent End) and Lucille Lonsdale (34 Richmond Court) will be extending the opening hours of their studios during the Festival so you can enjoy their work at a more leisurely pace. 


Thursday 29th and Friday 30th June, 1.30 - 5pm.

Saturday 1st July, 1 - 4pm

There will also be a scarecrow trail, giving each household the opportunity to make and dress a scarecrow to display outside their home - with prizes for the best dressed!  


The theme is "Europe" and there are sign-up forms in the Village Shop so do get involved and showcase your creativity!
