Enjoy live music, a gardening work shop, children’s wildlife and craft activities,  and more at the Martineau Gardens annual Spring Event on Sunday 8 May 2016, from 11am – 3pm. We’re holding a family friendly fete all afternoon, perfect for relaxing in the Gardens in the height of Spring and having fun. And to the sounds of birdsong and live music, we hope you’ll be inspired to ‘Grow Your Own’ at home.

Wander around local stalls, find out about gardening and get some grow-your-own inspiration with garden workshops. The event will be a chance for you to stock up on spring herbaceous plants and compost,  plus freshly cut vegetables are for sale. Children can enjoy free play around the shipwreck.


There will be live music from local  bands, check back here nearer the event date to find out who is performing for us. 

Crafts and Children’s activities:

We’ll announce the details on this, nearer the event date.


Visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics, but there will be delicious home-made cakes, salads and sandwiches and other refreshments on sale in the Pavilion.

The Gardens, though only two miles from Birmingham city centre are a green oasis that is teeming with wildlife. There’s plenty to enjoy, including woodland, glass houses, formal gardens, an orchard, vegetable plots, wildflower meadows and a ‘Shipwreck’ children’s play area.
