Join us at The Deanery on 8 June for Open Garden Squares Weekend 2019

Open Gardens Squares Weekend highlights some of the best gardens and green spaces that make up the rich tapestry of London's green infrastructure, but there are many others - just as valuable to their communities - which are ind ecline or under threat of development.  Funds raised during OGSW mean that the London Parks Gardens trust can continue its work to protect them.

Southwark Cathedral are delighted that The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn' Dean of Southwark will be opening his garden on Saturday 8 June.  Dating back to 1712, this gem of a secret riverside garden is located beside the Globe Theatre.  Secluded and hidden from the bustle of tourists, it is a peaceful haven for wildlife.  Planted with mature shrubs, trees and herbaceous plants, the garden is looked after by Mark Gibbons, gardener at  Southwark Cathedral.  

Activities taking place on the day includes;

  • Local folk artist Cunning Folk will be playing chart hits of the 1980’s on a giant banjo between 10.30am – 12.00 noon.
  • Winner of Carmac Harp Competition 2018 and final year student, Milo Harper a final year student at the Royal Academy of Music between 1pm – 2pm.
  • Tea, Coffee, Soft Drinks and home-baked cakes sold throughout the day by The Friends of Southwark Cathedral.
  • Potted herbs for sale.
  • Best-selling author Margaret Willes will be signing copies of her Bodleian Library publication ‘A Shakespearean Botanical’.
