The Cottingham Open Gardens Are Back

Mark your calendars for the annual Cottingham Open Gardens event, set to take place on the 16th and 23rd of June from 10am to 4pm. This captivating event promises a delightful day filled with natural beauty, inspiration and fun, all in aid of Dove House Hospice.

Cottingham Open Gardens has become a beloved tradition within the local community, offering a rare opportunity for nature enthusiasts and the full family to explore the hidden unique gems of local gardens whilst discovering the creativity behind each garden. Each garden offers something different whilst also having a variety of entertainment, music, afternoon teas, plants for sale and lots of other family friendly activities taking place to help raise proceeds for the hospice.

Amelia Cundill, a Fundraising Assistant from Dove House Hospice said, “Cottingham Open Gardens is an extremely popular event that takes place within Cottingham raising impressively over £10,000 for the hospice annually. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the gardens participating in this year’s event. Your generous contribution ensures that Dove House can continue to provide essential care and support for patients and families within Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.”

Entry is £5.00 per adult with accompanied under 16s being free. To purchase an event programme, please visit any participating gardens on the day or in advance from the Dove House Hospice shop in Cottingham, The Duke of Cumberland, King Billy Pub, Barkers and Café Nora & Nora Home.
