The inaugural Littlebury Festival in Essex ran over the
weekend of June 1st and 2nd, 2019. They raised £6,500 for charity - Bridgeen and I were really happy to take part and hope more events may be planned for the future. 


13 Open Gardens and 23 selling artists contributing to what should be a really enjoyable opportunity to wander some beautiful rarely open private gardens, drink tea, have lunch and see some of the artists at work - mosaic, weaving and embroidery will all be in action. There will also be a history of Littlebury on display at the Village Hall. Start there for map and tickets - £5 - funds raised from entrance and sales go to charity. 

Littlebury is near Saffron Walden and under 1 mile from Audley End House (English Heritage)
