Tickets can be bought in advance from Warwick visitor centre, which is located in the Court House, in Jury Street.

On the day of the event, tickets can be bought from the visitor centre or from the gardens.

The money raised from the event will go to the Warwickshire Air Ambulance, Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden and Hill Close Gardens.
