Ready to feel uplifted this summer? Nature can have a huge impact on how positive you feel. Come and relax in 8 acres of tranquil garden, woodland, and grassy meadow and enjoy optional creative and mindfulness activities, all bookable in advance. Sessions will be held each Thursday afternoon this August at Ham Cottage, an enchanting NGS garden which is full of magical colour! Parking is free.

All profit from the sale of tickets will be divided between the Koorana Foundation and NGS charities. Feel free to bring a blanket to lie down and simple refreshments (no picnics please), plus your own art materials if you want to create a memory to take home. You can also enter your photos in an exciting nature photography competition, details will be provided when you book and there will be a little nature quiz for younger children to enjoy.

Important – Book through our eventbrite page ‘The Koorana Centre’

All tickets must be reserved and paid for in advance. Online refunds will only be issued if ‘heavy’ rain prevents full enjoyment of the garden on the date of your visit at the arrival time or during activities.

Entry is 2-2.30pm, once in the garden you are welcome to stay until it closes at 5pm.

Each visitor will receive a map in advance which they can print at home with details of a nature photography competition which will be featured on the Koorana Centre Facebook and Instagram pages and in the free ‘Heart of the Garden Exhibition’ at the Koorana Centre during August bank holiday weekend 28-31 August 2-5pm.

Social distance guidelines will be in place during all activities to keep everyone safe.
