A Song for Will returns to The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April

We invite you to join us for a weekend of commemoration, storytelling and song, plus a tree planting ceremony with special guests in honour of the Centenary of Will Guy's death

As 2018 marks the Year of Remembrance and the Centenary of the end of World War One, Heligan invites you all to join us as we celebrate the lives of our ‘lost gardeners’ brought to life in our poignant book ‘A Song for Will and the Lost Gardeners of Heligan’ from the award winning creators of ‘Where the poppies now grow’.

Join local storyteller Jenny Beare and Flo Crowe in the Melon Yard, as they bring to life the story of Will Guy from Heligan’s touching book ‘A Song for Will and the Lost Gardeners of Heligan’

Our storytelling sessions will be held at 11.30, 1pm and 3pm on both Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April.

Elsewhere at Heligan there will be an opportunity to meet the author Hilary Robinson and illustrator Martin Impey, who brought our ‘lost gardeners’ to life.

12.30 – 2.30pm Saturday and Sunday, 3.30 – 4.30pm Saturday only in the Heligan Shop

Sunday 22nd April – 4pm - Sundial Garden

To commemorate the Centenary of the death of Will Guy, join his relatives for a special tree planting ceremony, accompanied by music from acclaimed local folk singer Tanya Brittain. All are welcome.
