What’s On – 2021

Hellens Garden Festival is an event for people, plants and the planet – we work hard to create an atmosphere that is inclusive and inspiring, a space for sharing ideas, creative collaboration and to create change for a better, more sustainable world.

This year we will deliver a program that is Covid – Safe and all talks and workshops will be outdoors, socially distanced and care will be taken to keep people safe..

There has never been a more pertinent and critical time to reduce our individual carbon footprints and take action to avert climate catastrophe. Join the conversation, take action, share ideas and ask questions from gardeners, foragers, innovators and people who are making a difference – and lets see what emerges!

Working together as communities creating change, the collective results will be incredible.

Hellens Garden Festival ‘Re-Imagined’ 2020

‘Hellens Garden Festival Reimagined’, was an ONLINE, creative digital event on the 22nd & 23rd August 2020. This exciting new format was hosted on our website and YouTube channel (not at Hellens) and featured live talks, herbal workshops, virtual dowsing and much more.

Highlights included the LIVE forum talk ‘Gardening for the Planet’ with acclaimed Author, Columnist and Gardener Tamsin Westhorpe and guests and our film released over that weekend ‘A stroll through the gardens and grounds of Hellens’. Depite restrictions we wanted to share the beauty and magic of Hellens. Find out about the ancient and rare pear tree collection, the long Garden, physic garden and meadows, and discover which well known Chelsea Award winning Garden Designer is creating a new garden at Hellens.

All of our video content is still available via the festival’s YouTube channel. Just search for ‘Hellens Garden Festival’ and you’ll find us!
