Bank Holiday Events May 25th at the Abbey House Gardens

Ok, with the dust settling from the first May bank holiday we thought it would be useful to air our plans for the next bank holiday on the 25th May 2009. 

All this talk of twittering gave us an idea to have a themed 'Bird Weekend' on Sunday and Monday  - 24th and 25th May respectively. The gardens will have a distinct aviary feel to them which we hope will encourage new and old friends to flock in.

Our nest will include artist Ian Chappel world renowned for his Bird Carving skills. Ian will be showcasing some of his Bird artworks in the Belvedere and also giving demonstrations of his skills. 

If you want to relax, unwind and be entertained during your migration then why not visit our bank holiday marquee that will be home to a professional story teller who will be specialising his tales towards ancient historical bird themed stories. 

Lastly, watch out for our bird trail that will help you navigate our gardens with look out points for spots that often get visited by specific types of birds. We cant make promises on what Birds you'll see but in the past Kingfishers and Song Thrushes have been spotted by our guests. 

A perfect event for young, old, new and returning visitors.
