May – August

If you love nurturing, visiting or appreciating gardens, then an enterprising South Cotswolds team have devised an art and culture festival that could be your pick of the crop this summer.

 The very first Everything in the Garden summer arts festival launches in May 2024 and will continue till the end of August. Highlights of events and venues are summarised in the festival schedule below. Organised by five female driving forces in the region’s arts scene, the programme is an imaginative fusion of artistic, musical and historical celebrations of gardens and their ability to revive our spirits.

We’re delighted that Painswick Rococo Garden is at the centre of the festival and we’re very much looking forward to kick starting the festival by hosting our first en plein air art compettion.

Partnering with Spencer House Gallery and The Goods Shed arts centre, both in Tetbury, as well as nearby arts organiser, Watch This Space Collective, and acclaimed landscape painter Angie Spencer, the team have devised a diverse programme of events, free or ticketed.
