Please come and join us for our annual beer and berberis weekend on 4th and 5th June.
For the 22nd consecutive year, we will be opening the brewery's garden, Hunmanby Grange to raise valuable funds for NGS charities.
It costs just £4.00 to tour both the brewery and the beautiful and interesting garden that Gill Mellor has created despite its exposure to the elements and a challenging soil. Gill will share her stories about how the garden has evolved over a quarter of a century into a series of gardens that have been developed depending on shelter, aspect, views and need. A new addition for the 2016 opening is the water feature that was a showpiece of the Welcome to Yorkshire award winning 2015 Chelsea garden, ‘Brewer’s Yard’. Visitors to the brewery will see where and how the award-winning ales are made and will be able to talk to the brewery team about what makes Wold Top’s beer special.
Refreshments will be available from local business, Field and Forage, whose cattle graze in the farm’s dale and there will be plants on sale.
The gardens and the brewery will be open between 11am and 5pm on both days and proceeds from the entry money will go via the NGS to charity. St. Cuthbert’s church in neighbouring Burton Fleming will benefit from the proceeds from teas and coffees.
NGS gardens across England and Wales welcome over 750,000 visitors a year to 3,800 gardens of quality, character and interest and raise over £2.6 million each year for nursing, caring and gardening charities. Last year, Hunmanby Grange’s open weekend raised over £2,000 for NGS charities.
