The Friends of the Priest's House Museum are holding a summer garden party in the museum’s beautiful walled garden in Wimborne on Saturday 3 August 2019, 2.00pm to 5.00pm. It will be a fun-filled event for the whole family.

The garden’s hidden alcoves and secluded lawns will be the setting for stalls including cakes, pre-loved vintage, tombola and bottle stall.

Visitors will be able to treat themselves to an afternoon cream tea or a glass of Pimms, while enjoying live music throughout the afternoon.

It will be free entry to the garden party, with the entrance by Wimborne Library.
