September 2019, exclusive subscriber event at Highgrove

“What an amazing evening we enjoyed. Everything about the event was perfect, even the weather obliged….. The staff from Highgrove were so attentive, the tour was very informative and the champagne and wine flowed. Monty Don of course was perfect – I have been to a previous event with him, and he always comes up trumps in a lovely relaxed manner. The 2 course dinner as it was advertised did not do it justice….Two gifts to round it off. How divine and unexpected. Bulbs, seeds, gloves as well as a superb book on Roses, all managing to fit into the lovely Highgrove bag.”

“It is now a week ago that we spent a magical afternoon and evening at Highgrove with Lucy and her team, the event was organised so perfectly with every little detail taken care of. The beautiful Orchard Pavilion was the setting for our dinner which started with Monty giving us an excellent talk on Longmeadow…

Finally, the dinner was of superb quality and the in – house team were seamless in their service, the tables were beautifully laid and the Highgrove gifts were much appreciated… On the way out we were presented with Goody Bags, what a treat and a lovely surprise, a great way to finish the evening.”
