Friends' Summer Party

Oxford Botanic Garden
Friends £5, guests £10
Tuesday 23 June

Every year we hold a summer party for the Friends, either at the Garden or the Arboretum, to thank you for supporting us again to raise money and awareness for both sites.  This year we will be back at the Garden. Come and meet Mark Brent, the new Botanic Garden Curator and Head of Horticulture, who joined the team this January. Wander the garden in the early evening with a complimentary glass of bubbly and see the Herbaceous border and Merton Borders in their early summer glory. The volunteer garden guides will be in attendance and scattered around the Garden and Glasshouses to point out the highlights and to answer questions.

Hear all about the ongoing fundraising efforts for new accessible paths at the Arboretum and how they will improve access all year round to the exciting new collections that the Arboretum Curator Ben Jones and his team are building up. Meet other Friends over a glass of sparkling wine and enjoy the wonderful array of canapés and sandwiches made by the Friends’ Events Team.

We are very happy for guests to come along with you to see the delights of the Garden and the benefits of becoming a Friends’ member.
