Villagers in Offchurch are inviting people to enjoy open gardens, art and music in the village this weekend (Saturday June 28 and Sunday June 29).
As well as nine gardens opening up as part of the National Garden Scheme’s (NGS) Open Gardens over the two days, village artists are showcasing their work as part of Warwickshire Open Studios at St Gregory’s church and there will be children’s storytelling sessions at noon and 3pm.
One of the art exhibits is a rather unusual knitted bicycle, ‘yarn bombed’ by a group of villagers. Following the display over the weekend, the bicycle will be put up for sale by silent auction.
Tomorrow (Saturday) the church will host the Circle Singers, while on Sunday, music will be provided by the Outreach Singers. There will also be teas, crafts, children’s games, a treasure hunt and stalls on both days. Admission costs £5 or free for children.
Proceeds from the open gardens events are donated towards charities supported by the NGS. For details, visit www.ngs.org.uk
