OUR GARDENS

The four-acre garden has been created by Raymond Treasure and Gordon Fenn. Both are keen plantsman and have incredible knowledge to share.

Stockton Bury has been in the Treasure family for three generations and much of the garden was pasture until the pair transformed it into this well-acclaimed garden. The original Victorian kitchen garden and impressive monkey puzzle tree are still very much part of the new garden. Now 30 years old the garden is home to mature plantings and offers keen gardeners plenty of inspiration. Both men were inspired by Raymond's relative the late John Treasure (well known for his garden at Burford House near Tenbury Wells) and their friend, the late plantsman Christopher Lloyd.

New to the garden this year is a pavilion which offers views over the garden and to the countryside beyond. Visit to enjoy the water garden. secret garden and productive kitchen garden. The area is blessed with fertile clay soil so many plants exceed expectations in this ideal growing environment. With interest from April through until the end of September you'll find yourself returning to see the garden in the different seasons.

The garden sits at the heart of a working farm which was originally one of the Bury farms of the Benedictine Priory in Leominster. The dovecote and medieval barns remain important landmark features.

Raymond's neice, Tamsin Westhorpe, has now joined the gardening team. She has previously been deputy editor of Amateur Gardening magazine and Editor of The English Garden magazine. Tamsin now spends time in the garden here and writes freelance alongside her role as an RHS Judge.

The café uses local produce and fruit and veg from our garden. Our chef is the talented Jane Lloyd and our café manager is Raymond Treasure's niece Connie Amos.

We do not reserve tables, however, if you are a group of over 15 advanced warning is much appreciated.
Café open from 11-4.30pm Wednesday to Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday's from 1st April.

Lunch is served until 2.30pm.

3 Choirs Festival

(Herefordshire Festivals and Shows)

      
Hereford Herefordshire England
Description : 

The Three Choirs Festival has its origins at the end of the 17th century in visits by the lay clerks of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester to one another's cathedrals for joint services and informal singing. More formal annual 'music meetings' can be traced back to around 1715 and have continued ever since, interrupted only by the two world wars, making this the oldest continuously running classical music festival in the world. The event rotates between the three cathedral cities on a three-year cycle. The next festival takes place in Hereford 28 July – 4 August 2018 and is the 291st Three Choirs Festival.

The Three Choirs Festival Chorus is largely drawn from auditioned members of choral societies in Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester, with the largest contingent each year coming from the host city. Amateur choral singers have been taking part in the festival since the middle of the 19th century to augment the cathedral choirs of boy trebles and male altos, tenors and basses.

The heart of the festival will once again be the Festival Hub, located in Hereford Cathedral School, where concert-goers and passers-by can find hot and cold meals as well as a bar and café, a free art exhibition and a friendly place to meet friends or spend a quiet moment.

Families are also welcome, with plenty of events for children, including an introduction to the wind quintet with the Magnard Ensemble, a dark retelling of Hansel and Gretel performed by the Goldfield Ensemble for teens and adults, shadow puppet storytelling with string quartet, and drama, drumming and puppetry workshops.
