HALLOWEEN (Saturday 30 & Sunday 31 October)

This year Caversham Court will be part of the Caversham Halloween Trail! Adults and children alike should be prepared to be spooked as you walk around the gardens on either of the above dates: ghouls, witches and mad monks will be waiting for you, to say nothing of giant spiders. You'll be safe in the Tea Kiosk, though, which will be open for restorative hot chocolate and tasty themed treats. The gardens will be open only during daylight hours. They will close at dusk as usual, so you won't be left there in the dark.

This is a free event at the gardens organised by The Friends; children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.


The Friends recently hosted six small group tours of the Kitchen Garden (now allotments) to discuss the history of the site and how the range of crops grown and diet had changed over the centuries. Forty people enjoyed the event over a mid- September weekend.

CHRISTMAS TREE SALE (Saturday 4 December)

Econet will be in the gardens between 9.30 and 12.00) to sell Christmas trees and decorations. The Tea Kiosk will have hot drinks and Christmas fare, and we hope to have some Christmas music to start the festive season.
