New ingredient at international sculpture exhibition

University of Leicester Botanic Garden offers added attraction for public

Issued on 29 June 2010

For the first time, the University of Leicester Botanic Garden is making available teas and cake at the weekends for people to enjoy the sumptuous setting of the international sculpture exhibition.

Refreshments will be available on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 4pm from 3rd July to 19th September.

Dr Richard Gornall, Director of the Botanic Garden said: “We hope visitors will find that this much needed facility will enhance their enjoyment of both the garden and its sculpture exhibition.”

The Botanic Garden offers 16 acres of the most diverse gardens and greenhouses in the East Midlands – indeed something for everyone in the whole family. The National Collection of fuchsias will shortly be coming into bloom and will be at its best from late July.

Entry to the Garden is free except on the occasion of special events, of which there are only two in this period: NGS Sunday (25th July) and NCCPG Plant Fair (5th September).
