Great Shelford Events

Scotsdales isn't just a garden centre. We also run a series of fun, educational and practical events throughout the calendar year. We try to cater for everyone, whether we're hosting a children's gardening club session or an evening of gin tasting. Some events are free free drop in sessions, whilst others need to be pre-booked and/or paid for in advance to confirm your spaces.
