The atmosphere said it all - so many people relishing the opportunity to visit the gardens, talk to their designers and simply enjoy being in the company of fellow enthusiasts – all in perfect weather. Compliments flowed, with more than one garden being pronounced a masterpiece.

Our thanks as always goto our incredible garden owners – whose generosity enables us to raise much-needed funds for our children’s charities and without whom the DesignFest simply wouldn’t happen.

We were delighted also with the support of all our sponsors – especially Dawson & Co and Dilmah, both uniquely suited to complement our beautifully designed gardens, as were our other highly valued supporters, each one adding to the special nature of our event.

As for our fabulous designers – what an impressive array of gardens they managed to produce – something for everyone which is exactly what we strive to achieve.

Lastly, where would we be without our exceptional volunteers who so generously gave up their time to welcome people to the gardens?

We are already looking forward to our fifth DesignFest – to be held in NOVEMBER 2019. In the meantime please enjoy the photos and information about the 2017 gardens, and those in our previous events, to be found here on the website. For Facebook and Instagram – click on the symbols below.
