The Hampshire Country & Garden Festival is dedicated to promoting the fun of the great outdoors and all it has to offer. We are celebrating the benefits to our health and wellbeing of gardening for all ages, healthy eating, inspiring speakers, learning new creative skills, enjoying music plus a wonderful array of childrens’ activities – in the most welcoming environment, the grounds of beautiful Bere Mill on the River Test. The Festival promotes all that is great about Hampshire, from food and drink suppliers to music, workshops and demonstrations, plant experts and nurseries. Whether you are an avid gardener or a family looking for a wholesome day out this is the event for you.
As well as a truly memorable, fun and informative experience all the money we raise is going to the North Hampshire Medical Fund which supports our local hospitals and patients in Winchester, Andover and Basingstoke. In 2018, we raised £25,380.91 which enabled the NHMF to buy a State-of-the-art Laparoscopic Simulator and Mobile Camera/Monitor System for Gynaecology, General Surgery and Urology at Basingstoke Hospital and put the remaining funds towards Intrabeam Intraoperative Radiology Equipment to treat Breast Cancer at Winchester Hospital.

Tickets include entry to all Demonstrations, Talks, Workshops, Children’s Activities, Gardeners’ Question Time and the Bere Mill Gardens will be open exclusively for festival-goers.
