This event takes place in Tewkesbury Abbey's Vicarage Gardens
The vicarage is located to the south west of the Abbey and can be accessed through either the gatehouse in Abbey Precinct or through the main gates. There is ample car parking within a few minutes walk.
Food and refreshments
The Abbey's Touching Souls tea rooms will be open during each event, and we encourage you to support the Abbey, who are very kindly lending us their gardens (and toilets!) by buying your snacks and drinks there. You are, of course, welcome to bring your own too.
Please bring your own chairs and/or rugs. Only extreme weather will cause us to move inside... so please come prepared!
