Britain’s Prince Charles’ home to host garden festival
Britain’s Prince Charles’ home will be host to a week-long garden festival.
The grounds at the 67-year-old royal’s country retreat of Highgrove House near Tetbury, Gloucestershire are set to become home to ‘Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated’, with the likes of Alan Titchmarsh and Raymond Blanc lined up as guest speakers.
A post on their official website reads: “Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated will bring together the nation’s best-loved gardeners and horticultural experts in a jubilee of events and presentations spanning across six days.
“Held at the Royal Gardens at Highgrove, this unique event captures, and celebrates, the essence and ethos of one of the most creatively inspired gardens of our time, epitomising the horticultural interests and enthusiasms of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.
“Along with highly acclaimed horticulturists and gardening personalities, the festival will celebrate all that is Highgrove with an incredible spring plant fair inspired by the garden’s plant collections, as well as a retail pavilion featuring a selection of exhibitors hand-picked by Highgrove.”
It is not thought that the Prince of Wales or his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, will attend the event but it has been approved to be held at the Royal Gardens to show the Prince’s support for sustainable gardening.
‘Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated’ will take place in the grounds of Highgrove House between April 11 to April 16 and profits will be passed on to the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation.
