Drawing Day: Autumn Colour at Winterbourne Botanic Garden

Hello Everyone,

The weather is looking promising for tomorrow, with early showers giving way to a mixture of sun and cloud across the day. Therefore, we will be going ahead with our Drawing Day at Winterbourne Botanic Garden from 10:30am to 5pm.

The gardens at Winterbourne are full of autumn colour at this time of year and you can read more about them here.

I have an up-to-date list of everyone who has informed me that they will be attending this event, which I will pass onto the staff at Winterbourne later on today. However, even if you have not signed up in advance, please feel free to come along if you would like to do so. (Just inform staff that you are part of the RBSA Friends group on entry.)

Unfortunately, the change of date has prevented a number of people who had originally planned to attend from doing so. As a result, I have fewer than the 12 anticipated attendees required by Winterbourne for us to gain admittance at the reduced price of £6 per person. However, Winterbourne’s standard entry fees are relatively modest and I do hope that this will not prevent anyone from coming along.

Single ticket with gift aid: £8.20

Single ticket without gift aid: £7.40

Over 65/student with gift aid: £7.20

Over 65/student without gift aid: £6.40

The house, art gallery, tearoom, shop and bookshop at Winterbourne are also lovely and well worth a visit in their own right. I will be on site from 10:30am and having lunch in the tearoom around 1pm and you are very welcome to join me.  (Please note that Winterbourne is a cashless site. Should this be problematic for anyone, please email me or speak to me on the day.)
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
