Summer evening at Ness Hall

Fundraising Evening for YGT Student Horticultural Bursary Fund
Ness Hall, Nunnington, YO62 5XD
Ness Hall - Maddy


Our venue for the Summer Party this year is Ness Hall. The main 2½ acre garden is contained in a 17th Century walled garden. It has been lovingly gardened and developed by 3 generations of Murray Wells. It now contains a rose pergola which should be in full bloom, a Japanese-influenced garden with pergola and stream, a woodland area, cutting and kitchen garden and a wonderful ‘fairy’ garden. Often described as a large cottage garden the borders are full, with self-seeding encouraged, there are lots of seating areas for relaxing and catching up with friends. There is also a large orchard and gardens around the house to explore.

This is an unashamed fundraising evening for our Student Horticultural Bursary to support individuals in their horticultural, landscape design, landscape/garden history research or conservation of historical designed landscapes careers.  We hope that tickets sales and a raffle to be held on the evening will provide a significant boost to the fund. (Please remember your purses)

Organiser: Maddy Hughes

Tickets cost: £20.00 (non-members £25.00) includes canapés and a glass of prosecco.
