Open Garden

Come and see a stunning secret garden hidden in the heart of Cambridge!

  • 8th June 2024 - 9th June 2024
  • 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Discover a stunning hidden gem right in the middle of Cambridge with our most beautiful fundraising event. The magnificent flora never ceases to astound us, and we love sharing it with you each June. The garden is different every year, so if you have been before it’s worth coming again to see the changes!

Join us on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 11am-5pm to explore the gorgeous garden of Red Balloon’s Founder, Carrie Herbert, at 49 New Square, Cambridge, CB1 1EZ.

For the course of the weekend, Carrie will throw open the gate to this normally secluded garden, allowing guests to unwind and enjoy the lovely blooms. We are looking forward to showing you the garden- things are looking lovely already!

We will have free entry and refreshments, with all donations made going to support Red Balloon.

We look forward to seeing you!
