A Garden Popup With Sophie Conran

Join award-winning designer, cook and mother of two Sophie Conran for a unique, one-off Garden Popup event in Tresco Abbey Garden...

On Wednesday 31st August our Garden Popup event takes a very special turn as we're joined by home and garden designer, Sophie Conran.

Beginning at 5:30pm, the event will begin with an audience with Sophie where she will talk about her life, family and career - as well as her own incredible and inspirational home and garden restoration project. Sophie will be joined by friend and horticulturalist Tony Howard, as well as Tresco Abbey Garden curator Mike Nelhams.

Following the discussion, Sophie and Tony will lead a plant potting workshop where they will demonstrate how you can create stunning and varied displays throughout your garden using colour, height and different pots to create a real impression. The workshop will give you the opportunity to get your green fingers busy potting your own Tresco Abbey Garden bulbs, to take home your own piece of Tresco for your garden. You'll have earned a glass of Prosecco and a selection of canapes after that!

After the workshop, curator Mike Nelhams will lead a stroll around Tresco Abbey Garden with insight and inspiration from Mike, Sophie and Tony as you meander along the paths and around the terraces of this stunning garden.

By this point of the evening, you'll have built up an appetite for a stunning Tresco Beef steak and Bryher lobster BBQ in the garden courtyard, with a fire pit to keep you toasty as the sun begins to set.


This event is strictly ticketed. Tickets cost £45 per person (under 16s half price) and can be booked by calling 01720 424068.
