Now here is a summer social event designed to delight and at the same time, help to fountain Festival 2022 to a successful conclusion.
It’s a garden party on Sunday 10th July starting at 2.30pm, at the wonderful Stanway House and Garden, by kind permission of the 13th Earl of Weymss & March, Lord Neidpath.
In the delightful grounds surrounding the magnificent sprawling Jacobean manor is the world’s highest gravity-fed fountain which reaches 300ft. It is also Europe’s second highest fountain after the Jet d’Eau in Geneva, Switzerland.
The fountain will be worked specially for the event and close up, it’s a sight not to be missed (making sure you are upwind of it!).
In the grounds is a tythe barn if the weather happens to be inclement. Delights on offer include tea with buttered scones and strawberry jam, his Lordship’s ‘stable of racing ducks’ as well as music from Badsey Brass Band, to say nothing of the fountain! There’ll be a bar, too, which includes Stanway’s own real ale.
It’s only £10 per ticket – you can bring a picnic to make the most of the afternoon. There’s ample car parking.
The event is being organised by the ever-inventive Charity Steward of Elmley Castle Lodge 6247 – to book tickets please contact Peter at email@example.com
