Beyond the Wall are delighted to announce the next fundraising event to be held at Thornham Walled Garden.

Wassail is an ancient custom that involves drinking cider and singing to the trees, to banish evil spirits and summon a good harvest.

With live music, food and drink, this will be a lively afternoon celebration, which is hoped will raise money for our formal garden, which we hope to have open to the public in 2017.

Tickets are bookable in advance only, to reserve yours, call us on 01379788799 or pop in to the garden and ask for a member of staff who will be happy to help.

Mellis Church-Victorian Christmas Market

Currently Beyond the Wall is the nominated charity at Mellis Church, something that everyone at BTW is delighted about, so when the opportunity arose to take part in their community ‘Victorian Christmas Market, we were only too happy to book a space and help make the evening a busy festive success.

Our stall was a showcase of some of the produce from the garden, including jams, festive preserves and chutneys. It was also a chance to show off some of the baking skills that had been learned in our cookery classes, the choc-chip muffins baked by clients for the event were delicious.

With our space also being home to plants, propagated by clients and volunteers within the walled garden, a complete feel was given, to the visiting public, of the activities and learning that go on ‘beyond the wall’.
