Events during June at Lamport Hall and Gardens

Posted 6th June 2024

Summer has arrived at Lamport and we can’t wait to welcome you! The gardens are a riot of colour and look spectacular, the 50th Anniversary Exhibition in the Hall is proving popular with visitors and we have a wonderful programme of events for all.

We are delighted to be opening our gardens on Saturday 8th June from 10am-4pm for the National Garden Scheme Open Day. The café will also be open so enjoy this rare opportunity to visit the gardens on a weekend date.

Our popular Study Days also make a welcome return on Tuesday 18th June. We will welcome local historian and author Neil Lyon to talk about Lamport and the wider county during WWII. Dr Laura Engel is a professor based at a university in Pittsburgh, USA, and she will be exploring the culture of celebrity including Sir Gyles Isham’s Hollywood acting career.

Dr Megan Leyland, a Senior Historian at English Heritage, will look at the 19th century architectural changes made to the Hall. Finally, Dr Jane Eade from the National Trust will look at the career and paintings of 17th century artist Joan Carlile. Tickets include lunch and refreshments.

On Friday 28th June we welcome Sardinian harpist Laura Crobu to perform the harp at Lamport. The recital includes works by Michail Glinka, Parish Alvars and Alphonse Hasselman.

The Realm of Enchantment will continue to host their themed stay and play sessions for children aged 2-11 throughout the school holidays. Check the website for dates and themes. A must for all little ones who enjoy being outside in nature.

The Hall and Gardens are also open every Wednesday and Thursday alongside the café and gift shop.
