Garden Volunteer at Kilver Court Gardens
 Why are we looking for Garden volunteers?
It’s an exciting time in the Kilver Court Garden as we continue on a path of renewal and change that has already seen a brand new plant nursery, re-designed sub-tropical island, fern stumpery and complete overhaul of our massive 100m herbaceous border, all in the last 2 years! As we look towards 2018 and beyond, our sights are set on some major design projects including the modernisation of our 1960’s Chelsea gold-medal winning rockery and creation of a Mediterranean border by our south facing sloped lawn. We also hope to be featured on BBC Gardeners' World this year with an update on all the changes we've made since we were last on the programme in 2014. But if we are to achieve our ambitious plans, we’re going to need some help!

Mik Artistik's Ego Trip at Cheese and Grain
11th July 2018

The surreal punk, funk, electric comedy phenomenon. The lyrical dexterity and the musical range of the band combine to make people laugh, cry and throw themselves about. They should be on the NHS and are a tonic in these troubled times. BBC6Music regularly play their tunes, Keith Allen has one of their teapots. John Cooper Clarke called them sensational and Glastonbury love them, having been at Worthy Farm 10 years on the trot. They say they are influenced by people like Reeves and Mortimer and The Fall but their mix of Rock'n'Roll and dry West Yorkshire wit is unique

2nd 2 None Driving School
14th July 2018

If you are between 12 and 17 years of age and want to experience the excitement of driving in a private training area under the careful guidance of fully qualified driving instructors then this is the event for you!

Learning to drive at a younger age can help you become a much safer driver when you reach 17; starting at a younger age gives you time to develop your driving skills over a longer period of time.

As well as learning how to control the car by using the clutch and accelerator there is plenty of room to run up and down the gears as well as getting the hang of the steering. You will also be able to practice hill starts, left and right turns, you will learn how to deal with crossroads and give-way and stop junctions as well as driving in two way traffic.

You will also learn how to reverse around a corner and reverse park, as well as the controlled stop.

Everything you learn on this course will help you when learning to drive at 17 and you will be given a progress record card at each session along with a course certificate.

60 mins one to one driving = £49

Group bookings and Party bookings are available upon request.

Glastonbury Abbey - Old Herbaceous - Kick in the Head Productions at Abbey House
8th September 2018

Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips”, Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced sell-out audiences all around the country over the last two years.

An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The evening blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century.

As Old Herbaceous, renowned actor Giles Shenton truly lives the part of the legendary Head Gardener, Herbert Pinnegar, inviting you to feel included in a private chat from a bygone, comforting age. Keeping you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, Old Herbaceous will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.

Start time 6pm with ‘doors open’ at 5pm.
£14 for adults and £10 for members.
Afternoon Tea available and picnics available - see ticket information

An evening with Brigid Keenan (The Sixities and Me) -at the Chapel, Bruton
4th October 2018

An evening with Brigid Keenan

Brigid Keenan was 21 in 1961 when she became the young fashion editor of The Sunday Times. In the decade that followed, the whole fashion scene underwent a revolution led by designers like Mary Quant, photographers like David Bailey, models and icons like Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton. They called it a Youthquake. The Beatles, the Stones and the mini skirt were invented. Times were a-changing and Brigid changed with them.
Drawing on the hilarious memoir of her youth, Full Marks for Trying and insights from her upcoming book, The Women We Wanted to Look Like, Brigid Keenan has collated a slideshow of images to tell the story of those heady days.

‘Fabulous . . . writes like a dream.’ Joanna Lumley
‘Keenan recaptures her era beautifully, with style and humour.’ The Guardian
