Feed your curiosity with over 200 gardens to explore in this magical two-day event. Gardens range from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental and can be discovered across 27 London boroughs.

We are busy preparing for another exciting Open Gardens Squares Weekend and can now announce that the dates for the 2017 event will be 17-18 June 2017.

All the gardens taking part will be announced in February; but in the meantime you can keep updated by signing up to our newsletter and social media sites.

Would you like to join us for our 2017 event? We are always on the look out for willing volunteers that can help us make Open Garden Squares Weekend happen. We are currently recruiting volunteer Area Co-ordinators who have the interesting job of finding and managing gardens in specific areas across the city.

Poet in Residence Training

For the third year, Open Garden Squares Weekend will feature Mixed Borders, a programme of poets in residence arranged in conjunction with the Poetry School.

The Poetry School are now looking for a number of poets to take part in Mixed Borders 3. You’ll receive a training session on successful residency strategies, and work with poets from previous years to shape your own residency in a London garden. By the end of the project you should have a lot of material for new work, and experience enough to begin to source your own extended residencies.
