Rose Celebration Week

19th June 2017 – 25th June 2017 all-day

Join us for a week of celebrations to mark the 21st Anniversary of Jay Robin’s Rose Garden, with its 750 David Austin roses which fill the air with a glorious fragrance.

The celebrations include weekday tours of the Elizabethan Mansion for individuals (usually open only to groups), plus half hour tours of the Rose Garden and surrounding borders. Additional tour charges apply – see below.

Art clubs are being invited for painting classes, whilst the Haywards Heath Horticultural Society will be sharing their secrets of how to make the best of hanging baskets and planters during a demonstration on Tuesday 20 June. Demonstrations are taking place at 11am and 1pm, and are included in admission.

There will also be David Austin rose plants on sale and specialist rose-themed gifts for sale in our shop. Several rose-themed artworks have also been commissioned as part of the 2017 Sculpture Exhibition.
