THANK YOU to all those who came to see our village in 2024 Open Village. We enjoyed sharing our village with more people than ever before. Many have already added feedback to our Facebook page, why not add your comments here as well – go to our feedback page.
THANK YOU to all the wonderful army of volunteers from Beckford and beyond who made this exceptional weekend happen. It is nothing without the hard work and dedication, that starts nearly a year before the event, of very many special people.
We’ll be back in 2026. 6th and 7th June – put it in your diaries now!

Photo Gallery

Our resident photographer, Trevor, spent the two days visiting all the gardens and attractions. Take a tour of the 2024 Open Village by visiting our Photo Gallery page on this website. His photos of the gardens have been compiled into short videos of each garden for you to enjoy on our Garden Gallery page.


Photo Competition

During the 2024 Open Village we invited visitors to send in their photos to enter into a competition for the best picture, which we will most likely use in the publicity for the next event in 2026. We added a pet dog category to the competition. You can view the entries by going to the Photo Competition page.
