Picnic with the Past

This year we are will be helping our colleagues at The Gatton Trust with their major celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, who landscaped Gatton Park in the mid-17th century. 

Brown championed the transformation of formal gardens to naturalistic landscapes, opening up views and planting specimen trees and tree clumps to maximise the pastoral effect.  He often created large lakes and serpentines to add both impact and tranquility as at Gatton Park.

Two special 'Capability' Brown open days with GCT actors as costumed interpreters promenading the park and interacting with visitors will take place on Sunday 27th and Bank Holiday Monday 28th August.  Visitors will be able to picnic in the park and learn more about 'designed' landscapes and how Brown came to be nicknamed 'Capability'.  Actors will play the part of Mr Brown, Sir George Colebrook, the owner of Gatton at the time, his family, friends and estate workers.

Tickets will be on sale from the Gatton Park website closer to the time.  Adults £8, children free.
