It may not have been the best start to the summer season but when the sun starts to shine it’s important to be ready! Bents Garden & Home has planned an event full of ideas and inspiration for enjoying the garden at its Alfresco Festival when the Centre will be joined for the weekend by ITV’s Love Your Garden presenter Frances Tophill.
On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June Bents will be the place to be to discover ideas for eating, socializing and enjoying the outdoors as well as getting the very best from your garden.
Says Matthew Bent, Managing Director at Bents Garden & Home: “Alfresco living isn’t just about eating outside, it’s about enjoying spending time outdoors with friends and family. We want to encourage people to make the most out of their garden, no matter how big or small. Our Alfresco Festival is all about getting that space ready to go, for when the sun comes out and we can enjoy an outdoor event to remember.”
Bents will be holding their Alfresco Festival on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June when as well as ideas and inspiration for gardening and outdoor living there will be BBQ demonstrations and tasters from Heston Blumenthal’s Everdure range and the DeliVita pizza experts.
