Summer Garden Party

One of Hereford’s best kept horticultural secrets is the Black Friars Rose Garden hidden down an unassuming passageway in Widemarsh Street. The garden contains the remains of the friary of the Black Friars, once one of the city’s most important religious houses. A little bit easier to find now, following Hereford BID's inclusion of the attraction on our street information boards, situated throughout the City centre. ​

Monday 17th June, The Friends of the Blackfriars Rose Gardens invite you to join them in celebrating the 12 rose beds replanted thus far and 8 beds of remarkable old roses still blooming. Learn more about future plans for this beautiful historic site in Widemarsh Street. 

YOU ARE INVITED FOR

4:00 – 5:45 p.m.   Summer Garden Party in Blackfriars off Widemarsh Street to view old & new roses in bloom, rain or shine

6:00 – 8:00 p.m.   Tapas & Drinks at Waitrose Hereford Café

Little plates created by the chef at Waitrose are likely to both amuse and surprise – a variety of locally sourced ingredients deliciously blended. Delivery of successive tapas to the table will be paced to allow enjoyment of the food & conversation. Dinner afterwards would be a mistake!
