We are pleased to once again be offering an Autumn Snowdrop Lecture. This year we will have Melvyn Jope coming to talk to us about autumn snowdrop varieties. Melvyn will also be bringing bulbs for sale, as will Joe Sharman of Monksilver Nurseries.

Visitors can arrive from 10am when there will be tea/coffee available and homemade scones (included in ticket price), and most importantly, visitors will be able to purchase snowdrops for sale from Melvyn and Joe. We then plan to start the lecture at 11am.

Afterwards we will be serving a homemade light lunch option. This needs to be purchased/booked in advance with your tickets so we know how many lunches to cater for. There will only be extra tea/coffee and cake available to purchase on the day.

                  Lecture Tickets (including tea/coffee & scone on arrival)         £7

               Lecture Tickets with lunch                                                             £10

 Lunch Choices

Sweet Potato Soup

Creamy Broccoli and Spinach Soup

Roast Vegetable and Lentil Chilli

All served with crusty bread

Tickets can also be paid for by cheque. Cheques made payable to Mr B Potterton and posted to address below. Tickets will then be posted when cheque's have cleared, please leave enough time for the cheque to clear.

Last minute ticket purchases can be made by phoning and reserving places, and then collecting and paying for tickets on the day. However past experience has told us that this can cause queues in the morning which not only causes delays but can eat into valuable Galanthus buying time! So ideally purchase in advance, thank you.
