National Garden Scheme (www.ngs.org)
The garden has opened every year since 1989 to raise money for the National Garden Scheme (Yellow Book), when spring is sprung. In 2020 this is TBC. The Directors are always grateful for help on that day, with donations of homemade cakes to sell on the tea stall, assistance with washing up, serving tea and plant sales. Each year the date will be posted on the gates and announced here on the site.
Open Garden Squares Weekend (www.opensquares.org)
Suspended until after June 2020. Eccleston Square joins some 190 other squares and gardens throughout the city, which are open to the public on a round-robin ticket during the course of the weekend. Eccleston Square opens on the Sunday afternoon 2-5pm. Posters go up on the gates each year with further details.
