Wrest Park (EH) 27-05-2013
Wrest at War! Come and experience the theatre of war from all quarters at Wrest Park. From the Tommy in the trenches of WWI to the Trooper of the WWII D-Day landings, this dramatic weekend tells the stories behind the battles of the World Wars that shaped the world as we know it! From the sadness and injury of the battlefield to the make-do-and-mend merriment of the homefront, Wrest at War has it all! With music and performance from both eras and fun family activities throughout, this event will be an explosive action packed weekend not to be missed!
After decades behind virtually closed doors, its treasures overgrown and largely unknown, English Heritage is reviving one of Britain's largest and most important 'secret gardens' - Wrest Park in Bedfordshire.
This is a wonderful 90-acre historic landscape and French-style mansion which will take its rightful place amongst the country's great garden attractions - and give locals and visitors to Bedfordshire a superb new day out.
Stroll in the recently restored Italian and Rose Gardens. Enjoy miles of reinstated historic pathways as you discover the garden buildings, pavilion and statues.
