The Guardian: ‘England hath need of thee’: appeal to save Milton’s Paradise Lost cottage

28th – 31st July 2022
We’re delighted to be part of this year’s Bucks Open Weekend – hosting an outdoor workshop in our garden with artist Frog Morris on Thursday 28th July, from 11am – 1pm.This year’s Open Weekend theme of ‘trees and green’ was originally inspired by the Platinum Jubilee 2022 ‘Queen’s Green Canopy’ project. It will encourage people to engage creatively with nature, trees, green spaces, landscape, and their heritage.  This subject has inspired institutions, groups and individual artists to register their events as part of our collective celebration and activities are taking place across the county.

There are lots of opportunities to discover something new in Buckinghamshire, such as storytelling events, backstage tours, painting with natural colours, walking tours, photo walks, performances of songs, poetry readings – and much more.  Combining cultural activities with being outside also gives this year’s Open Weekend activities the potential to benefit residents’ health and wellbeing.

Organised by Buckinghamshire Culture with the support of Buckinghamshire Council, Visit Buckinghamshire and the Rothschild Foundation, Bucks Open Weekend will be a celebration of all things creative and cultural that Buckinghamshire has to offer. Details of what’s happening, from creative workshops to walks, performances and open days, all linked to this year’s topic of ‘trees and green’, can be found here:
