Supporting London's Parks and Gardens
We aim to keep the ticket price as low as possible; but obviously we need to cover the costs of making the event happen (marketing, PR, producing the guidebook and so on). Ticket sales, along with sponsorship, contribute to this. If there is a surplus from the event, this is split between the participating gardens and the London Parks and Gardens Trust (the charity which organises the event). By supporting this event, you are contributing to the protection and maintenance of hundreds of green spaces across London.
Many gardens offer refreshments and activities. These are organised by the individual garden volunteers and any money raised through this type of activity goes to the individual garden or their chosen charity e.g. RNLI.
