Cake, Coffee & Live Art, Blakenham Woodland Garden, Mon 1 May 2017
Anna Matthews of La Tour Cycle Cafe, Ipswich, will continue her popular series of pop-up coffee-shops at the stunning Blakenham Woodland Garden (at Little Blakenham, 4 miles north west of Ipswich) over the Bank Holiday weekend: Sunday 30th April and Monday 1st May 2017, as part of the National Open Gardens Scheme (NGS).
On the Bank Holiday Monday 1st May, she will be joined by Ipswich artist Lois Cordelia, who will perform live speed-art demonstrations throughout the day.
Covering 6 acres, Blakenham Woodland Garden is a glorious combination of traditional English woodland and many exotic trees, flowers and shrubs, planted over a period of 50 years, as well as Chinese rocks and landscape sculpture. From early daffodils and drifts of bluebells to rare magnolias and camellias, the garden offers an ever-changing pattern of colours and scents throughout spring and early summer.
What more idyllic backdrop could you want for enjoying your cake and coffee, with the chance to watch live art in progress, too - hope you can join us! There will also be garden plants for sale.
Location - see map below for directions:
Admission: £4. Children: £2.
