It’s just a few days until the return of the Martineau Gardens Summer Garden Party and Charity Auction, taking place on Saturday 14th July 4pm til 8pm. In our 21st year as a Community Garden, this looks to be a bumper year for the event with great auction lots and raffle prizes.

Hot off the press, our Auction Brochure is available here – please enjoy a preview ahead of the party – just click on the brochure image.

For a sneak preview of what to look out for on the night, read the following, provided by our Chair of Trustees and event organiser, Sue Roberts:

“To whet your appetite, here’s a very special one day trip for two.  I have long hoped to have a luxury train trip in our auction and am delighted to be including it this year.

A trip for 2 to the RHS Tatton Flower Show on Friday, 20th July, aboard the Luxury Northern Belle train.  The Northern Belle is a private luxury train launched in 2000 after careful restoration by Venice-Simplon Orient Express. Your trip will include: 

    • Fine-dining
    • Delicious three-course brunch on the outward journey
    • Morning tea and coffee
    • Visit to the RHS Tatton Show, including coach transfers & admission
    • A complimentary RHS membership pack
    • Champagne reception back on board
    • Sumptuous five-course dinner: British seasonal table d’hôte menu including Great British cheese board, biscuits and chutneys
    • A bottle of wine per couple
    • Coffee, tea and petit fours

BIG PRINT:  These tickets have been offered at a 50% discount and the first £400 raised will go to the Northern Belle.  The trip will depart from Birmingham International at 10am arriving back at 9pm.  Time on train is 2.5 hours each way.”

With our recent publicity around our appearance on BBC Gardeners’ World last week, and the launch of  our Courtyard Garden supported by Jo Malone London, tickets are selling fast. Please do purchase tickets in advance (subject to availability), via the following ways:
