Below is a list of Friends of TWIGS events:

Open Days 2019

Our Open Days for 2019 are :
Wassail, Saturday 12th January 11-1

It’s time to get the year into gear again and what better way to start than with a wassail!  Bring your family and friends.  Twigs will be open from 11 and the Morris Men will start the wassail procession at 11.30.  Bring along anything to bang and make a noise with – and your singing voices to cheer on the apple trees.  There will be hot drinks, soup and hot dogs on offer after the hijinks – and possibly cake too (all offers welcome!) and it will all end by 1.00.

Snowdrop Day, Sunday 10th February 11-3

Come and see some of the 10,000 snowdrops planted at TWIGS two years ago. Adults £2, Concessions £1.50 and children free. Here is a poster to help us advertise the event if you have anywhere you can display it.

Spring Open Day, Sunday 28th April 11-4
NGS Open Day, Sunday 19th May 1-5
Summer Open Day, Sunday 23rd June 11-4
