Meet Up at Garden Museum 14 July

Categories Community, Local Events, Outings

The Garden Museum is holding its annual community day on 14 July 11 am – 4 pm.

Each year the Museum opens its doors to the local Lambeth community free of charge. This is a great opportunity to get to know the museum. Whether you’ve been curious but never had the chance to visit, or you’re a regular visitor.


If you would like to be part of a friendly group at this event, we’re suggesting an informal meet up. People should make their own way to the Garden Museum. An LHS Committee member, wearing an LHS badge, will be on hand at the entrance between 11am and 11.30 am. We can then plan our itinerary for the day. Or you may bump into us later on. Everyone is of course free to come and go as they please.

If you think you may be interested and want to be part of a WhatsApp group – just for this event – get in touch here. Otherwise, just come along!

We’ll also be at Gipsy Hill Village Fete on 14 July `12 – 4 pm. Come along to say hello, get supplies from the pop up Hut,and maybe join us if you’re not a member. Long Meadow, between Gipsy Hill and Dulwich Wood Avenue (SE19 1QR). More

By fabulous coincidence, the number 3 bus travels between the Garden Museum and Long Meadow. Why not do both, if you have the energy!
