Ventnor Botanic Garden to mark 40th anniversary

Tourists heading on Isle of Wight holidays this summer could take in the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the opening of one of the island's top locations.

Ventnor Botanic Garden was opened in June 1972 and will be marking its birthday with an event.

According to a report by VentnorBlog, the Friends of the Ventnor Botanic Garden have teamed up with the new Community Interest Company (CIC) to run a guided walk around the gardens, which will feature canapes, cake and beverages.

The Shanklin Town Brass Band will also be in attendance, providing live musical entertainment for those who want to go along on June 21st, with tickets priced at just £10.

However, those who want to ensure they can attend need to book their place in advance.

Tomorrow (June 1st), the garden is hosting a design walk led by CIC director John Curtis, which will be followed by a meal prepared by the location's cafe's new chef Martyn Cutler.
