Prepare yourself for a feast of fantastic events as the Worcestershire Heritage Garden goes above and beyond in 2014.

Between April and June the Vale of Evesham celebrates its association with “gras” as it hosts a variety of events all celebrating the delicacy that is asparagus. Commencing on the 23rd April, St George’s Day, with the Great English Asparagus Run and closing its doors on Midsummer’s Day, 21st June, these two months with be full to the brim of quirky, asparagus related events.

Droitwich Spa hosts its popular Summer Festival for another year combining the very best of local food, drink, music, arts and activities from the 21st June until the 6th July.

Why not come along to the beautiful town of Pershore in August for the month long Plum Festival, one to watch in 2014 following its success in winning the Worcestershire Best Festivals and Events award for the third year running. With the town celebrating the purple fruit, for which it is internationally known, there will be plenty of things going on to suit the whole family.

Or join us in Droitwich Spa in September to celebrate the towns association with salt at the annual Salt Festival on the 13th and 14th September. There will be heritage displays, Roman re-enactment, live music and entertainment, stalls and much more to see and do.
