Join in - events, workshops and lectures
To celebrate the centenary and invite visitors to enjoy the garden and learn more about the Japanese garden style and culture of Japan, Tatton Park is hosting a number of events during 2011. A programme of workshops delivered by Professor Fukuhara and his team gives an opportunity to learn a new skill. From 26 March to 3 July, the Mansion at Tatton Park will host an exhibition of Japanese gardens and Japanese artefacts collected by the former owners of Tatton, the Egertons. Families are invited to take part in Children¡Çs Day activities on 2 May. Finally, Tatton's gardening team will be creating a Japanese garden as its 'back to back' garden exhibit at the 13th RHS Flower show at Tatton Park in July.
