Chiswick House & Gardens have planned a range of activities in the gardens over the Summer to raise funds and have some fun on the way. Over the summer months you can enjoy yoga by the Ionic Temple, come to one of our Summer Open Days, take part in our Chiswick House Art Competition or have an evening out with Chiswick Festival in the Walled Garden.
Our wonderful Summer programme of events is only possible with the support of our network of local organisations and companies. A big thank you to John D Wood & Co, Chiswick Auctions, Chiswick Book Festival, Chiswickbuzz, Chiswick Festival, Chiswick House Friends and Dog Show Committee.
We would love to have you involved. Your support matters.
Your Safety at Events
We have introduced new safety measures in line with the latest government guidance at all upcoming events. Your safety, and that of our staff, is our highest priority. There are staggered entry times into some events to reduce queuing ease the flow of visitors, hand sanitising stations readily available and increased cleansing of toilet facilities. There are limited tickets available for all events to ensure each event is socially distanced and our visitors feel safe and comfortable. Please follow government advice. If you or your guests have symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating you must not visit the Gardens.
Chiswick House & Gardens are delighted to be able to offer a series of live webinars on a range of popular topics – hands on top tips from our Gardeners, live interviews and stories about Chiswick House itself – something for everyone!
Book tickets to the Summer Open Day to scavenge in the Kitchen Garden, peruse the Chiswickbuzz Craft Market, meet the beekeepers, be immersed in storytelling, get crafty, explore the Kitchen Garden and much more! Plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy.
This year’s Chiswick Book Festival will take place online over the long weekend 10th – 14th September. Attendees will join in online, with sessions taking place on video, Zoom and in podcasts. Instead of buying a ticket this year, a donation would be greatly appreciated by the Chiswick Book Festival. Find out more about the programme of events and how to donate via their website.
Chiswick House Dog Show have sadly had to cancel this year’s show but in it’s place will be a fun filled event for all the family with their dogs of course! ‘Sherlock Bones’ invites you to join him, to sniff out the clues and help solve the mystery of the ‘canine genius’ at the Dog Treasure Hunt, kindly supported by Wolfe Vets. Keep an eye out the Dog Show website for more details coming soon!
As a culmination of our fundraising efforts to aid our post-Covid recovery, we are planning a charity auction at the end of September. With generous voluntary support from Chiswick Auctions and their leading auction specialist Adrian Biddell, we are now looking for donations to auction.
