Back by popular demand, industry charity Hospitality Action will be hosting its seventh annual spring tour of the gardens at Highgrove on Thursday 30th April, to raise much-needed funds and awareness of the charity’s work.
Hospitality Action, the industry’s benevolent charity for nearly 180 years, provides a lifeline for current and former hospitality industry workers who find themselves in a crisis, both at work and in their personal lives.
Despite the chilly winter, the mark of spring is finally arriving with many of the new shrubs and trees planted in the late autumn; this is the perfect time to experience an array of spring flowers blossoming. No two years are ever the same at Highgrove, and the tour will reveal a host of new garden joys.
Prior to the tour, guests will enjoy a champagne reception, followed by a fabulous three-course lunch at the beautiful award-winning Calcot Manor. Escorted by one of HRH’s expert guides guests will be taken on tour of the unique Highgrove Gardens and will also have the chance to purchase a wide variety of home and lifestyle products at the Highgrove shop, before rounding off the day with delicious tea and cake back at Calcot Manor. The day is being supported by Design Restaurants who showcase the most inspiring dining destinations in the UK.
Last year’s impressive event was a sell-out success, with the charity raising more than £11,000 through the day’s auction, raffle prizes and ticket sales. Penny Moore, CEO of Hospitality Action, says: “We are delighted to be returning to Calcot Manor and to offer our supporters the chance to visit these stunning gardens at this flourishing time of year. This exclusive afternoon is sure to appeal to both garden-lovers and foodies alike and is set to be a fantastic day!”
Tickets are priced at £95 and include coach transfers between Calcot Manor and Highgrove. Early booking is recommended, as places are limited at this popular event. Contact Giuliana on 020 3004 5504 or at email@example.com or to book online visit: www.hospitalityaction.org.uk/events
